Prepare the juiciest and most delicious chicken you’ve ever tasted with this recipe for Chicken Provencal. It consists of fresh chicken thighs prepared in a white wine sauce with olives and fresh garlic.
In a large, deep skillet, heat the oil and butter over medium-high heat. Season the chicken liberally with the salt and pepper.
Add the chicken to the skillet and sear for 3-4 minutes per side, until golden brown. Remove chicken from the skillet and set aside on a plate, tenting with foil to rest.
Reduce the heat to medium-low. Add the onion and the garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion starts to soften, about 3 minutes. Add the wine to the pan and scrape up any brown bits, then simmer 1-2 minutes until reduced by half.
Add the diced tomatoes, olives, rosemary, thyme, ½ teaspoon salt, and ½ teaspoon black pepper. Stir and simmer for 5 minutes.
Nestle the chicken pieces and any juices into the mixture. Reduce the heat to low and simmer, covered, for 10-15 minutes, until the chicken is just done. Remove and discard rosemary and thyme.
Serve garnished with fresh parsley and lemon wedges, paired with roasted potatoes and green beans.
