That’s the thing I adore about most comfort foods; they ‘re so damn delicious and you can usually afford to whip up a fabulous meal without breaking your wallet. Which means you can splurge on something else at the market. Isn’t that a win-win situation?

    Yep, totally win/win! Love that you’ve used thighs & drummies – so flavorful! Your chicken looks so moist, love that it makes it’s own gravy too.
