Ingredients

  • Prep Time:
  • Cook Time:
  • 1 3/4 cup (440 mL) Alfredo pasta sauce
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast(s)

  • 8 boneless, skinless chicken thighs

  • or
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) tarragon, dried
  • 2 red pepper(s), small

Instructions

  1. Pour the sauce into a large frying pan placed over medium heat. Slice breasts, if using, into 3 or 4 pieces. Add the chicken to the sauce. Sprinkle with half the herbes de Provence. Turn chicken and sprinkle with the remaining herbes.
