This. Was. Wonderful. Everyone in the family (including a teenage boy) gave it an enthusiastic thumbs up. I couldn't find herbes de provence at my grocery store, so used this substitution recipe (without the lavender)
2 teaspoons dried thyme
2 teaspoons dried savory
1 teaspoon dried marjoram
1 teaspoon dried lavender
½ teaspoon dried rosemary
½ teaspoon fennel seeds
1 crushed Bay leaf
I used about 1 1/2 recipes of the substitution and it was plenty for our tastes. I rubbed it into the chicken, but didn't add any additional before baking.
It does need some liquid in the sauce, but instead of adding white wine like one reviewer, I just added a few tablespoons of water. I also added an extra apricot or two. The garlic, sweet apricots and spices make such a delicious combination. I served it with rice and steamed vegetables. It's definitely a keeper and I will make it whenever I have access to good fresh apricots.
