The flavors are bold in Chicken Provençal, a Southern French braise with a sauce of tomatoes, garlic, rosemary, olives, and just enough anchovy paste to give the sauce depth. Simply brown seasoned chicken pieces in a skillet until golden brown, then remove them to a plate and build your sauce right in the pan. Once it's simmered for a few minutes, return the chicken to the pan and cook until every piece is infused with that garlicky, olive-spiked tomato sauce. Serve the dish with a crusty baguette, buttered rice, or mashed potatoes. Plus: More Chicken Recipes and Tips
Simple roasted new potatoes or boiled green beans would be excellent with the gutsy flavors here.
There are lots of interesting wines from the region of Provence that will be ideal with this dish. For a lighter, summer wine, look for a Rosé from that region. If you prefer a red, try a Côtes de Provence.
