Herbs de Provence make this dish smell as good as it tastes, exuding a “fresh from the farmer’s market” flavor.


  • 4 small bone-in chicken breasts, skin removed
  • 2 tsp Herbs de Provence
  • 1 tsp garlic salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 Tbs canola oil
  • 1 1/4 lbs small red potatoes
  • 3/4 cup frozen pearl onions, thawed
  • 1 cup baby carrots
  • 3/4 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 8 oz small baby bella mushrooms (white mushrooms)
  • Fresh thyme, chopped (optional)


  • Combine the Herbs de Provence, garlic salt, and pepper on a plate. Spoon flour on to a second plate. Coat each chicken breast in the herb mixture; then dredge well in flour.
  • Heat oil in a large skillet. Add chicken and cook over medium-high heat until chicken is golden brown on both sides; approximately 3-4 minutes per side. Cook chicken in two batches if necessary so as not to crowd the pan.
  • Place chicken in a large slow cooker and add remaining ingredients except fresh thyme. Cover slow cooker and cook on high for 4 hours or on low for 8 hours. Sprinkle with fresh thyme before serving, if desired.
