When I came across this recipe many years ago, I knew I had a new-found family favorite on my hands. The chicken always turns out moist and tender.

Prep: 25 min. Bake: 1-1/4 hours

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 broiler/fryer chicken (3 to 4 pounds), cut up
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1/2 pound sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 3 cans (15-1/2 ounces each) black-eyed peas, drained
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon herbes de Provence
  • 1/2 cup white wine or chicken broth
  • 1 medium tomato, chopped

Directions

In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the flour, salt, pepper and paprika. Add chicken, a few pieces at a time, and shake to coat. In a large skillet, brown chicken in butter and oil on all sides. Remove and set aside.
In the same skillet, saute mushrooms and onion until onion is crisp-tender, stirring to loosen browned bits from pan. Stir in the peas, garlic salt and herbes de Provence. Transfer to an ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish.
Arrange chicken over pea mixture. Pour wine over chicken; sprinkle with tomato. Cover and bake at 325° for 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 hours or until chicken juices run clear. Yield: 6 servings.
Editor's Note: Look for herbes de Provence in the spice aisle.
