Skillet Chicken and Winter Vegetables

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by ratwoman

I adapted this recipe from a Pillsbury Homestyle Meals booklet. I like it because using the thighs, it is the closest thing to pot roast I have had since I had to stop eating whole beef. It originally called for stewed tomatoes but I like that the diced is more evenly distributed in the mix. It serves two in my family and is easily increased.

Very bland. We even added a bunch of stuff in anticipation of it being bland and it was still pretty bland. We used a can of diced tomatoes with jalapeno peppers, added minced garlic, mushrooms and kale, added 4 additional red potatoes to make more servings (for leftovers), cayenne pepper, Italian seasoning. Still... not as flavorful as I had hoped. I suspect that people who don't like highly-flavored food might like this.
