A quintessentially Provençal pleasure– chicken pieces roasted with shallots, garlic, olives, tomatoes, lemon, vermouth, and flavoured irresistibly with Herbes de Provence. Our delectable blend of this classic features rosemary, thyme, tarragon, orange peel, mint, lavender and raspberry leaf.
Approximately 1kg chicken drumsticks, skin on (~8 drumsticks)
Pat chicken pieces dry with a paper towel, then season with pepper and sea salt. Combine Herbes de Provence with flour in a shallow dish, then dredge the chicken in the mix. Dust off excess flour and set aside.
Grease a deep roasting pan with olive oil.
Arrange chicken skin-side up in the roasting pan, surrounded by lemon wedges, garlic and shallots.
Scatter the olives and tomatoes over the chicken, then drizzle vermouth into the pan.
Roast for 25 minutes, then baste the chicken with pan juices.
Return to the oven, reducing the temperature to 180ºC. Continue roasting for a further 25 minutes, until the chicken is crispy and cooked through.
