Chicken Provencal

This Chicken Provencal recipe is easy to make and packed full of lovely flavours. I'd defrosted some chicken with the intention of making a chicken Tagine and then realised I couldn't actually be bothered!

So, what to cook, what to cook? As there were olives, bell pepper and courgette in the fridge that needed to be used up, I made this up as I went along. Do you do that, make recipes up?

I think the best dinners are made up with what you think goes and what you feel like eating at the time.

I will say you really do need good quality tinned tomatoes otherwise the sauce will lack in flavour. I used tinned cherry tomatoes as they're really lovely and sweet. If you're in the UK then I recommend Tesco Finest because the juice is nice and thick.

I think this would be excellent to at a dinner party, it's so easy to make. You could serve with new potatoes and fine green beans to fancy it up a bit.

  1. The best dinners are sometimes what we throw together at the last minute Jan!!! This is no exception.

  2. Jan, I think the briny green olives would taste great with the chicken...good on ya!

  3. A sort of Chicken provencal, I love it. I regularly start out with the intention of one meal and decide to do somthing else and they always seem to be the tastiest.
    I am aiming to try yours and I dont think I will end up making anything else, it looks and souns so good.
