Does anyone have a recipe for this herb blend? I am looking to make packets of them for gifts. Thanks in advance.

i've always substituted Beau Monde and it was fine
I use this blend on a lot of chicken and pork recipes...it's delicious. You could substitute this in place of recipes that call for thyme.
The recipe that comes to mind is the stuffed chicken breasts with artichokes and goat cheese...one of my favorite CL recipes..you can find it in the recipe finder.
Thanks njwgood and greysangel for your speedy replies. I am actually looking for a recipe for the herb blend itself. I am looking to find out what is in it and the proportions for gifts.
JeAnne, I have tried that chicken dish you referred to and I agree, it is delicious!
Not a recipe per se, but I got this from the Provencal pantry website:
I know my mixture tastes heavy on the lavender and thyme.
hope this helps?
Herbs: The mixture of dried herbs known as herbes de Provence usually contains rosemary, basil, marjoram, sage, fennel seed, savory, lavender and thyme. It's a good reflection of the herbs used in Provence, but for authentic Provençal flavor, use these herbs, particularly basil, in their fresh state (except for lavender and fennel seed, which you'll probably only find dried).
I know for a fact there are numerous variations on ingredients of this mix, but here's one from our handy-dandy Cook's Thesaurus:
herbes de Provence Pronunciation: AIRB duh proh- VAHNS Notes: Dried is an acceptable substitute for fresh. To make your own: Combine four parts thyme plus four parts summer savory, two parts lavender, and one part rosemary.
Here's a recipe:
