For my last birthday, my cousin gave me this really awesome cookbook called "Engagement Chicken" It is a really fun and girly cookbook that had a lot of recipes that every woman should know and one of them turned out to be Chicken Provencal. I have heard of this dish before but I realized that I have not actually ever tried or cooked it myself! I read the recipe and made a version of it. I did my own modifications too. The result is a really flavorful and delicious dish with herbs and wine and other ingredients like olives and pimiento. Read on to see more!
Ingredients : salt, pepper, white wine, olive oil, pimientos, black olives, thyme, herbes de provence, flour, onion, garlic, butter and chicken breasts.
Chop up the onions, garlic, pimiento and olives. Chop up the chicken breasts.
Season the breasts with salt and pepper then dredge in flour. Shake off excess.
Fry chicken in olive oil (and a bit of butter)
Cook the chicken until it is slightly golden brown on each side.
Set aside cooked chicken in a platter.
In the same pan, saute the garlic and onions. Add some white wine and then some herbs.
Dump in the olives and pimientos and let simmer for a few minutes.
Put in the chicken and toss it all in - making sure all flavors coat the chicken evenly. Cover pan and simmer for about 15-20 minutes.
Serve and enjoy!
