I used water and cornstarch (not chicken broth) and 1/4 C sugar for the sauce after it had cooked down. I cooked the turkey longer until cooked through. It came out tasting like turkey with cranberry sauce....YUM! The fennel was spicy. I was surprised that I liked it but my husband thought it was too spicy. It is spicy and even though i dont usually like spicy at all but I really liked this! It didnt burn my lips or mouth but got spicy as an aftertaste...strange but it gave a variety of different tastes!
