Chicken Provencal

"Herbes de Provence" is a mix of dry aromatic plants. It is heavily used in French cooking. These herbs are native to and have their origins in the Provence region of southern France that borders Italy and the Mediterranean sea. The mixture contains rosemary, marjoram, savory, basil and thyme. The Mediterranean flavor of these herbs is essential to many meat, poultry, fish and vegetable dishes, particularly tomato-based and grilled dishes.
Chicken provencal is a French country dish of roasted (or braised) chicken with garlic, tomatoes, and olives.
