Chicken Provencal

A chicken dish that I have already loved with the whole family, the aroma that is left throughout the house is so appetizing that you will not have the patience to taste it.

You can take the mixture of Provence Herbs and ready-made at the store, or combine the spices yourself: thyme, rosemary, marjoram, basil, oregano - or at least 3 of them.


Chicken meat
1 kg
I took boneless and skinless thighs - you can also cook whole chicken pieces
White onion
2 pieces
Canned chopped tomatoes, 300g
1 piece
or 6-7 diced tomatoes
Pitted olives
150 g
Garlic cloves
6 pieces
Red peppers
0.5 pieces
White dry wine
40 ml
Extravirgin olive oil
2 tbsp
Herbes de Provence
2 tsp
0.5 tsp
Salt and pepper
1 tsp
to taste

Step by step


Prepare all the ingredients - I fried kalamata olives with seeds (to remove the seeds, press the olive with a turned knife and notice that the seeds will come out very easily).


In a deep bowl, place the canned tomatoes, diced peppers and onions.


Add the pitted olives, 5 cloves of finely chopped garlic, 1 teaspoon of Provencal herbs, 1 tablespoon olive oil, wine and 1 teaspoon salt.

Mix well and season with salt if needed.


Wash the chicken well and mix with 1 clove of finely chopped garlic, 1 teaspoon of salt, a little black pepper, cumin, 1 teaspoon of Provencal herbs, 1 tablespoon of olive oil.


Now we have 2 bowls, the first with vegetables, another with meat.

In a deep oven tray put half of the vegetable composition.


Place the pieces of meat evenly over the vegetables.


And evenly distribute the other half of the amount of vegetables over the meat.


Cover the tray with a lid or aluminum foil and place in a preheated oven at 200 degrees for 60 minutes.


After this time, remove the foil and leave it in the oven for another 30 minutes.


Tomato juice should drop well, not be like water.

When ready, remove from the oven and let cool for 10 minutes.


Serve with your favorite garnish - we put rice and sauerkraut :)

Good appetite!
