Herbes de Provence Recipe

Herbes de Provence are a mixture of dried thyme, marjoram, savory and various other herbs, but it’s the dried lavender that gives this blend of summer herbs its unexpected magic.

Try this: Take a skinless breast of chicken, coat it in olive oil and sprinkle both sides with Herbes de Provence. Let it marinate for an hour or so, then grill it. That’s it.
