Chicken in Vegetable Gravy

This is another quick post. I got the recipe off Aunt Eya’s blog. My mind was a blank, and I had no idea what I was going to cook. Wasn’t in the mood (didn’t even have the strength) for any experiments, so I wandered off to her blog. In addition to gossip and advice, she has a lot of recipes, and most of her recipes use food stuff you already have at home.

I had a bucketload of vegetables, and I found the exact recipe I needed. Quick, easy, and ultra-tasty. I just tailored it to my taste. I put in exact measurements for you guys, used some different vegetables, altered some tiny stuff, dazzall. Thank you, Aunt Eya, for a really good recipe.

Cooking Chicken in Vegetable Gravy


Hi, my name is Chidinma. I’ve been happily married for 4+ years (actually almost 6 years now), and my husband and I have been trying to have our own children for almost all the time we’ve been married, with no success…yet. We haven’t lost hope (far from it), and we believe it will happen very soon.
