I have fond memories of going on vacation with my grandparents in their travel trailer. Every day we stopped at a camp ground and my grandmother cooked dinner. I remember her making something like this though I never had her exact recipe.

I have experimented with this recipe until I felt it was close to her's or at least until it tasted like I remembered. Hope you and your family enjoy it also.

What a tasty and simple meal! The chicken thighs cook to be very tender. The tomato gravy is flavorful and full of tomato and veggie chunks. One comforting dinner... Grandma would be proud! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
