Holy Yum Chicken - To make low carb use sugar free maple syrup instead of the regular maple syrup and use Xanthan Gum instead of cornstarch. Xanthan Gum (my favorite): this is made from fiber so all the carbs can be deducted. Use a LITTLE bit (1/2 teasp. will thicken 1 cup). I sprinkle on about 1/4 teas at a time and whisk real well. It will thicken a little more on standing so be careful not to overdo.
