  4. Drain the chicken from the marinade, discarding the marinade.
  5. Heat remaining marinade in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil and stir in 2 tablespoons cornstarch combined with 2 tablespoons water.
  6. Cook, stirring frequently, until thickened about 1-2 minutes; keep warm.
