  • 1/2 cup celery, finely chopped
  • 2/3 cup plain dried bread cubes

In small saucepan over medium heat, combine cornstarch, poultry broth, mustard, honey and lemon juice. Cook and stir until sauce thickens. Remove from heat and fold in mayonnaise.

To serve, remove string or skewers from thighs. Slice into rolls and top with Creamy Mustard Sauce.
