  • Ready to use. Add to taste. Season hearty foods such as roasted meats and root vegetables.
  • Top confections and baked items such as salted caramel and bread with a moist salt crunch and unique balancing mineral flavor

Roasted Chicken with Herbes de Provence

Infused with the flavor of summery herbs common to Southern France — including thyme, lavender flowers, rosemary and marjoram — these aromatic chicken breasts are first seared in a hot pan and later finished in the oven until golden brown.

Cook time: 30 minutes
Total time: 30 minutes
Servings: 4


  • 4 bone-in, skin-on chicken breasts
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon F+F French Gray Sea Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine ground black pepper
  • 3 teaspoons Herbes de Provence


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Rub chicken with 1 tablespoon olive oil, season with F+F French Gray Sea Salt and pepper, and rub with Herbes de Provence.
  3. Heat remaining olive oil in oven-safe pan or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. When oil is shimmering, brown chicken skin-side down, working in batches, until caramelized and crisp, about 6 minutes per batch.
  4. Return all chicken to pan, skin-side up, and transfer to oven to roast until instant-read thermometer inserted into thickest part of breast, away from bone, registers 160°F, about 15 minutes.
  5. Remove from oven and let rest 5 minutes. Drizzle with pan sauces and serve hot.
