Creamy Skillet Chicken
Why I Love This Recipe
Dried herbs offer an easy alternative to fresh herbs. They add a stronger, more concentrated flavour than fresh herbs, but will quickly lose their flavour. To substitute dried herbs for fresh, use a quarter of the amount of fresh herbs called for in the recipe.
For maximum flavour, store dried herbs in jars away from heat and light. Dried herbs can be kept for up to 6 months. After this period, consider replacing them. it's best to purchase dried herbs in small quantities to avoid waste.
