When I first came to belgium, I would have never thought I would eat chicken without any spices. For me it was like how can you eat NV dishes without spices in them. it was unthinkable and still after years I started enjoying the variety of food which was unknown to my taste buds, like this Chicken Povançiale.
I am sure there is hundreds of way to make this dish, i don't claim mine as authentic, it is just my way of making them.

Add the oil in a large pan and fry both the sides of the chicken pieces, for few minutes each. Remove them from the pan and keep it aside.
Now add the bacon, capsicum and onions and saute for few minutes , add the tined tomato and the paste. Stir and add the chicken pieces back to the pan.
Add more water if you need . Add salt and peper and parsley cook for 30 minutes or till the chicken is cooked.
Add the zucchini half the way so they don't cook too much . Add the mushroom 10 minutes before the cooking is done together with the olives.
Serve hot with potato croquettes , rive, bread, or even fries.
