Lots of flavor going on in this dish and the anchovy paste gives it a really nice depth of flavor. Don't be afraid to add it.

How to Make Provencal Chicken


  1. In a large, deep pan, heat the oil. Season the chicken with 1/4 tsp. each of the salt and pepper. Brown chicken in the pan, turning and cooking 8 minutes in total. Remove the chicken and pour off all but 1 tbsp. oil from the pan.
  2. Reduce the heat and add the onion and cook until it becomes translucent. Add garlic and saute until fragrant - be careful that it doesn't burn. Add the tomatoes, herbs, olives and anchovy paste along with the remaining salt and pepper.
  3. Add the chicken thighs and drumsticks and any accumulated juices. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes. Add the breasts and cook until the chicken is just done, about 10 minutes (depending upon thickness of breast meat). Add additional pepper if desired.
