Description

This recipe is perfect for on-the-go families who want to come home to a delicious meal that’s ready to eat. With just 30 minutes prep time, you can set the slow cooker in the morning and forget about it until dinner time.

Ingredients

  • 4 small (2 lbs.) bone-in chicken breasts, skin removed
  • 2 teaspoons Herbs de Provence (or combination of dried thyme, fennel, basil and savory)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 Tablespoon canola oil

  • 3/4 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth

  • Chopped fresh thyme (optional)

Preparation

  1. Combine the Herbs de Provence, garlic salt and pepper on a dinner plate. Spoon flour on to second dinner plate.
  2. Coat each chicken breast in the herb mixture; then dredge well in flour.
  3. Heat oil in a large skillet.
  4. Add chicken and cook over medium-high heat until chicken is golden brown on both sides (approximately 3-4 minutes per side).
  5. Cook chicken in two batches if necessary so as not to crowd the pan.
