For home cooking at its most satisfying and basic, we turn to chicken. Seasoned with savory herbes de Provence and healthy spices like turmeric and garlic, this week's dish pairs beautifully with a crisp salad and almost any vegetable you can name.
It’s also pretty easy to prepare: Just a little cutting and slicing of potatoes, lemon and onion, a bit of sautéing and mixing, and into the oven it goes.
Herbes de Provence is a traditional blend of herbs that flourish in the Provence region of France: basil, thyme, savory, rosemary, tarragon, lavender and fennel seed. This mixture is a classic seasoning for roasted chicken and potatoes. (It also loves tomatoes — try it mixed with sea salt in this Heirloom Tomato Salad.)
We love cooking and baking for the holidays and other special occasions. But in between the fancy meals and parties, sometimes it's nice to have a simple dinner in the kitchen.
