RUSTIC GARLIC JALAPENO CHICKEN & GRAVY

I love this recipe! It is so simple and is a fantastic recipe for company. I LOVE FRESH herbs, but let’s face it with just 2 of us it is difficult to buy them in small enough quantities that they don’t go bad before I use them all and some just aren’t available the way I want them.  I WILL GET MY HERB GARDEN GOING eventually.  In the meantime I’ve been using LITEHOUSE freeze dried herbs and they are really good.
