Stewed Chicken In Tomato Gravy

Kathy Sterling


When I was a young girl, my grandparents would take me on summer camping trips across the country. We would be gone for 3 weeks in a camper my grandfather built...quite rustic. Every evening we would have a home cooked meal and this recipe was my all time favorite. When I make this, it brings me back to eating it outside on a summer night.

I don't prepare this often as my husband does not eat chicken and it serves a lot of people. My grown girls like it, so I make it for dinners when we get together.
