I love chicken à la provençale (in the manner of Provence) with tomatoes, garlic and olives. It is a healthy and light way to cook chicken. It also makes for a very moist chicken, which is great because chicken has a tendency to get dry. I have a wonderful family recipe that is very easy to make, and generally, a crowd pleaser. Enjoy!
You will notice that the recipe includes a glass of white wine. However, you won’t be able to taste the wine once the dish is cooked, so any inexpensive white wine you find at your grocery store will do. They usually sell small bottles that are convenient for one recipe. You could also substitute with water if you do not want to use wine (but using wine is a better choice).
If you would like to make this dish into a special meal, then you could get a bottle of white wine for cooking AND drinking with your meal. In that case, choose a white wine from Provence as this will go best with the provençal style of cooking.
