Chicken & Herbes de Provence

I first came across herbes de Provence when I was visiting Frankfurt on my way back from Paris.   A friend had asked me to buy her a small container of this heavenly smelling spice and I had forgotten, but luckily found it right on a supermarket shelf in Frankfurt – and that’s actually when the request hit me!!

I find the delicate taste and aroma of this herb quite refreshing and amazing in a sense that it transforms your usual dish into a quite novel one.   Here is how I used it with fried/oven-baked chicken.

Ingredients (for 4): one fresh chicken consisting of 2 breast’s filet, and 2 legs, cut, washed and dried. Olive oil, 3 tbsp. Onion, 1 large, thinly sliced. Saffron, ¼ of teaspoon.  Fresh lime juice, 1 tbsp.  Herbes de Provence, ½ teaspoon.  Bell peppers, few slices. Salt and pepper, to taste.
