Italian Chicken with Stewed Tomatoes and Sweet Onions
This is a healthy, hardy comfort food recipe. Wait, did I mention it's affordable? Well, it's easy on the budget and it holds well in the fridge, getting better by the day. I love anything with a tomato sauce, so it's perfect for those who feel the same. The onions bring a sweet flavor to the dish, giving a balanced flavor. It's simple, flavorful, easy-to-make, and incredibly amazing. - Taylor Terrell
