Description

Herbs de Provence is a blend of thyme, rosemary, basil, marjoram, sage, fennel and lavender. You can taste all the herbs especially the lavender, which makes all the difference. It is not perfumey in any way, it is very light and delicate. The chicken gets a nice crispy skin and is very juicy and tender. It is perfect to serve with fresh vegetables, pasta or potatoes. It really can do with anything.

Ingredients

  • 3 whole Chicken Thighs, Skin On
  • 3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 3 teaspoons Herb De Provence
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 1 whole Large Shallot, Sliced
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter
  • 1 Tablespoon Quick Mix Flour

Preparation

Heat 2 heavy skillets on medium-high (cast iron if you have it).

Combine olive oil, herbs and salt in a small bowl.

Separate skin from chicken and rub oil mixture under the skin, turn and rub on bottom of chicken thigh. Place in skillet, skin side down in one skillet and then place second skillet on top of the chicken, pressing the chicken. Cook 5-7 minutes on each side, or until done.

Remove chicken from skillet. Add shallots to drippings and saute, whisk in butter and quick mix flour, cook until shallots are soft. Spoon sauce over chicken and serve.

No longer wondering what I’ll be making for dinner tomorrow! I love the blend of Herbs de Provence; there’s always a bottle in my spice cabinet. I’m thinking some smashed red potatoes, a side of steamed green beans and a bottle of crisp white wine … my husband is going to be a very happy man!
