"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

1 roasting chicken, quartered
1 lemon, sliced in half
olive oil
1 shallot, chopped
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 lb tomatoes, peeled and chopped
2 tbsp chopped fresh herbs: tarragon, thyme, majoram
2/3 cup chicken stock
2/3 cup white wine

The seasonings of Southern France - tomatoes, herbs and garlic - combined with chicken make a dish that contains the essence of Provence. If you can't get good sun-ripened tomatoes, canned tomatoes (drained) are preferable to flavorless hot-house ones.

Rub the chicken with the cut lemon. Heat the olive oil in large pan and saute the chicken until skin is golden. Turn skin side up, cover pan, and cook until chicken is done. Remove chicken and quickly saute shallot and garlic in pan. Return chicken to the pan and add remaining ingredients. Simmer uncovered until sauce is thickened. Season with salt and pepper.
