Why We Love Creamy Chicken Herbs de Provence
Herbs the Provence are one of our family’s favorite spices to use for cooking and various marinades.
For a stronger aroma and flavor I like adding fresh herbs to the mix which gives an amazing look and taste to the dish that actually looks like it came straight from the restaurant.
For the chicken, feel free to use any chicken parts.
Chicken thighs are usually more tender and tastier and are perfect for sauces.
