I was happy to taste this recipe for a French company Bonduelle, the company that produces canned and frozen vegetables all over the world. I enjoyed writing about their products in my Russian language blog. Since that time, chicken breasts with green peas and herbs became our family frequent weekday meal.

I changed the recipe to my liking while keeping its major concept. The dish turned out great. We (my family) were very pleased with a tender and juicy bite size chicken, delicate grassy peas and silky sauce. The dinner was made in just half an hour.

This chicken can be served ‘family style’ – in one casserole (gratin, lasagna) glass or ceramic dish, or in individual ramekins, which makes the presentation more elegant.
