Anne says: “We always have a can or two of tomatoes on hand – they are one of my favorite go-to pantry staples! In addition to being necessary for making a lot of my favorite soups, chilis or stews, I also use canned diced tomatoes to make one of my all-time best super quick and easy dinners – my Saucy Tomato Artichoke Chicken, which is linked below! It only uses a handful of ingredients and one pan to get dinner on the table in a flash.”
