Saucy Thighs

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by GaylaV

I needed to get dinner in a hurry and this is what I came up with. This is a super easy, super fast way to get a dinner on the table in under an hour. Bonus is it tastes great. The V8 gives some veggie flavour and nutrients without all the chopping when you are in a hurry. This dish would also be great with chopped peppers if you like. We like it served over egg noodles or spaghetti but it would also be good with rice. Be sure to get the noodles cooking while the thighs and sauce simmer.

Made for Spring PAC 2009. This was wonderful and smelled heavenly while it was cooking. Because I'm allergic to mushrooms, I replaced them with a 14.5 ounce can of diced, drained tomatoes. DH loved it and so did I. Will definitely make this again. Thanks for posting this Gayla!
