The first time my mother brought home herbs de provence from the store I was in love. In my opinion it’s the perfect blend of spices – plus it’s fun to say since it’s French and doing so makes you feel sophisticated 😉
Inspired by my own hunger and the ingredients in the fridge, I came up with this low-calorie recipe that is healthy, easy, and full of flavor!
Ransack your kitchen for:
- 3 chicken breasts
- 3 tsp EVOO (you can also use canola oil)
- 2 tsp herbs de provence
- 2 stalks celery, sliced
- 1/2 large onion (or 1 small one), sliced
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 8 oz. sliced mushrooms
- salt & pepper
- 1/4 cup of red wine
*MAKES 3 SERVINGS
First, season each chicken breast with herbs de provence, salt and pepper. Next, add the olive oil to your pan and once it’s warm, place the chicken in the skillet. Meanwhile, slice the onions, celery and mushrooms. Once sliced, add the celery and onion to the pan.
Continue to cook the chicken and once it is no longer pink, add the mushrooms, red wine and minced garlic.
Cover the skillet with a lid and let it simmer for about 10 minutes until the chicken has fully cooked and soaked up the wine flavor.
This recipe is super easy and all of the flavors compliment each other so well. To top it all off, it’s only 288 calories a serving! One of my favorite things about this chicken is that it comes out so tender – by letting it simmer in the wine it soaks up a lot of flavor!
All I can say is yum. Serve it with your favorite blend of quinoa, brown rice or whole grain couscous! Eat up & enjoy!
