Overnight Herb, Crispy Split Chicken Breast

I picked up some Herbes de Provence from Trader Joes and wanted to be sure to put it to good use. I was mostly intrigued by the packaging, but after using it in this marinade, I realized it was a jar full of great flavors. This simple recipe requires minimal prep and low "cooking involvement" (a term that I use to describe how much you need to do while preparing the meal). Hope you enjoy this chicken just as much as we did!



  • 2 Split Chicken Breast (mine were ~1.2lbs for both)
  • 1 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1 tsp Black Pepper
  • 4 Garlic Cloves Chopped
  • 1 tsp Onion Powder
  • 2 tsp Herbes de Provence
  • Olive Oil to Coat (~1/4 cup)
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 2-3 Fresh rosemary leaves (optional)


  1. Dump first 7 ingredients into a Ziplock bag.
  2. Mix until spices and olive oil are evenly coated on the chicken.
  3. Store in Ziplock bag in the refrigerator overnight (not more than 24 hours)
