This is a simple great dish with aromatic flavors that permeate your kitchen.

Herbes de Provence is a mixture of dried herbs. It has savory, thyme, rosemary, basil, marjoram, sage, fennel and the most important American addition- lavender. Lavender is hard to grow where I live, I’ve tried. I love the flavor of lavender in cooking.

Ingredients:

4 chicken thighs
4 carrots (peeled, chopped in big pieces)
1 large baking potato or several red potatoes (chopped into bite size squares w/skin)
4 celery stalks (peeled and chopped into big pieces)
