Why This Recipe Works
Patting the chicken breasts dry before cooking our recipe for Chicken Provençal was essential—otherwise they would not brown properly. When purchasing kalamata olives, we found it was best to look for the fresher olives from the refrigerator section of the supermarket—the jarred, shelf-stable ones were bland and mushy in comparison. Preparing the sauce in the same pan in which we cooked the breasts allowed the sauce to picks the flavor from any browned bits left behind.
