Are those onions on your thighs’?

Irisa Raina 9


This is such a favorable dish!
Don’t let the amount of onions scare you, some will melt into the gravy as it cooks.

If you don’t have any honey mustard, add two tablespoon honey and 3 tablespoons of any bold mustard to the stock mixture.

I served this with mashed potatoes and a garden salad.
