Chicken Provencal

Chicken Provencal

This delicious RV-friendly French chicken dish is easy - most of the ingredients come from the pantry - and pretty-enough for company. Because the anchovy paste and olives are so salty, taste before using additional salt. It is traditional to serve Chicken Provencal with boiled parsley potatoes.

Olive oil
4 skinless boneless chicken breasts
¼ cup all-purpose flour (for dredging)
2 cloves crushed garlic
2 teaspoons anchovy paste
1 cup chicken stock
One 14 oz can diced tomatoes (do not drain)
¼ cup pitted kalamata or nicoise olives (whole or chopped)
Salt, to taste, if desired
¼ teaspoon black pepper, or to taste
Large handful fresh basil leaves, coarsely chopped
Additional basil or parsley leaves as garnish, optional

Heat a 12-inch skillet over a medium-high flame and coat the bottom of the skillet with olive oil. Dredge the chicken breasts in flour and cook, turning once, until the chicken is just cooked through, about 8-10 minutes. Remove to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm.

Add the garlic and anchovy paste to the skillet, stirring over medium heat for a few seconds, then deglaze the pan with the chicken stock. Stir-in the canned tomatoes, olives and basil and simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the sauce thickens, about eight minutes. Add the cooked chicken back to the sauce, just for a few minutes, to reheat. Serve the sauce poured over the chicken, and garnish with fresh basil or parsley leaves, if desired.

Serves 4.
