Herbes de Provence Blend

Herbes de Provence Baked Chicken

4 bone in and skin on chicken breasts (you could also use parts, but I like white meat)
4 Tablespoons melted butter
3 Tablespoons honey
2 teaspoons salt
freshly ground pepper
1 Tbsp Souper Spices Herbes de Provence
1 cup white wine
2 Tablespoons flour
1/2 cup chicken stock
Rinse the chicken and pat dry. Put the chicken in a cast iron pan. Whisk together the melted butter and honey. Add the Souper Spices Herbes de Provence, salt, and pepper. Pour the honey mixture over the chicken. Toss the chicken to coat. Pour the wine over the chicken. Bake the chicken in a 425 degree oven for about 45 minutes. If it starts to get dark, cover it with tin foil. It is not burnt, but the honey will turn color quickly. Make sure that your chicken is cooked through before you take it out. Take the chicken out of the pan and let rest on a plate. Put the remaining juices on the stove and boil over medium to high heat for about 3 minutes. Whisk the flour and chicken stock into the pan juices. Whisk constantly, until it thickens, about 3 minutes. Pour some of the gravy over the chicken. I served mine with some wild rice and roasted carrots.

Mix bread cubes, 1 Tbsp Souper Spices Pork Blend, celery, onions and toss with melted butter. Stuff the chops, salt and pepper them and place a large baking dish.
