Herbes de Provence is an assortment of dried herbs said to reflect those most commonly used in southern France (basil, fennel seed, lavender, marjoram, rosemary, sage, summer savory, and thyme). Enjoy this straightforward recipe, courtesy of H-E-B Cooking Connection.
Place chicken breasts, single layer, into an ungreased 13x9-inch baking dish.
In a medium-sized bowl, combine olive oil and the herbes de Provence together. Pour marinade over chicken breasts. Cover and marinate at room temperature for 20 minutes or refrigerate to marinate longer (turning meat over several times).
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Bake, uncovered, 25 to 30 minutes or until a meat thermometer registers an internal temperature of 165 degrees F (juices will run clear when cut with the tip of a knife); basting several times during cooking. Remove from oven and serve immediately.
* Do not remove skin until after baking, as the skin helps to retain moisture in the meat.
