2 teaspoons herbs de provence
1 Tablespoon + 1–2 teaspoons olive oil

  2. Add 1 Tablespoon olive oil and when oil is hot, add chicken to pan.
  3. Cook chicken for about 3-4 minutes per side, until cooked through.
  4. While chicken is cooking, mix together yogurt, herbs de provence, 1 teaspoon olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
  5. Remove chicken from pan and set aside. Add another teaspoon of olive oil to pan if it’s dry.
  6. Add leeks to pan and cook for 1 minute.
  7. Add asparagus and peas and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally and until vegetables are tender.
  8. Season with remaining 1/2 teaspoons of salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper.
  9. Divide yogurt mixture onto 4 plates and slightly spread yogurt over plate.
  10. Top with chicken and 1/4 of the vegetable mix.


If you don’t have herbs de provence, Italian seasoning can also be used.
