This elegant entree requires only 5 minutes of prep time and only 4 ingredients! Herbs de Provence is a blend of herbs popular in Southern France. It typically includes thyme, rosemary, basil, tarragon, marjoram, and sometimes lavender. If you don't have the blend on hand, you could make your own, or use dried rosemary instead. Pair with a simple vegetable side dish like Easy Middle Eastern Green Beans.
