"Add flour to the sauce." No slurry? Just dump it in, right? You will get a hard ball of raw flour, not a thickened sauce! Has the person writing these recipes ever cooked?

I did not make this recipe because the ingredients call for chicken cooked and sliced. Then in the instructions it says cook the chicken in the pan. SO WHICH ONE IS IT???????
