Alright now back to my Cherry and Sun-Dried Tomato & Garlic Chicken… πŸ™‚

This recipe brings a little bit of Provence to your Fall. It is full of both cherry and sun-dried tomatoes, basil, oregano and Herbs de Provence… which has to be one of my favorite seasonings.

I just love the extra something something that Herbs de Provence adds to a recipe. I recently added a dash to sweet potatoes, and had to take another look at what is actually inside Herbs de Provence because it tasted that good!

If you are curious, Herbs de Provence, or at least the one that I use, is made up of thyme, rosemary, basil, parsley, oregano, tarragon, marjoram, and lavender flowers.

Ah lavender flowers… the smell just brings me to summer… these are definitely what adds the provencal feel to the dish.

This Cherry and Sun-Dried Tomato & Garlic Chicken has been my lazy night go-to lately, because it’s so simple to make.

It’s also been my immune booster because of the garlic.

For this recipe, I cooked the garlic a bit with red pepper flakes, then I add the cherry tomatoes and sun-dried tomatoes, then the chicken and spices, and let everything cook until the flavors seep into each other.

The tomatoes here soften and crinkle beautifully, and the chicken grills nicely. It’s a savory flavorful dish which really cooks itself, and which brightens up crisp Fall nights.

I have a feeling I will be making this many many more times.
