This delicious summer recipe is inspired by the vibrant flavors of southern France's Provence region. Tender fingerling potatoes, blanched green beans, seared chicken and fresh tomato come together on the stovetop in a simple, delicious sauce of butter and vinegar. And in true Provençal fashion, we’re using plenty of fresh aromatics to flavor our chicken, vegetables and sauce—including garlic, shallot and thyme. A garnish of sliced almonds provides a finishing touch of crunch.
