Chicken With Chocolate and Herbes De Provence

“From Delicious Living. Very unique dish.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. 1. Trim any fat or sinew from chicken. Mix together herbs, parsley, salt, and pepper, and rub chicken with mixture, coating thoroughly. Pour broth into a pan just large enough to fit chicken snugly and bring to a simmer over high heat. Add chicken and any remaining herb mixture. Cover tightly, reduce heat to maintain a bare simmer, and cook until chicken is done, about 5–7 minutes. (If pieces are large, this may take a bit longer, but be careful not to overcook or they will be tough and dry.).
  2. 2. While chicken is simmering, in a small pan combine balsamic vinegar and maple syrup; cook over high heat until bubbly and slightly thickened, 2–3 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in chocolate.
  3. 3. Increase heat under chicken to high, remove lid, and add balsamic-chocolate mixture, shaking pan to mix juices. Turn chicken several times to coat well, shaking constantly. When sauce is bubbling, remove from heat. Taste and correct seasoning if needed. Sprinkle with chives and serve at once.
