Chicken Provencale Recipe at
FOR VEGETABLE: In a large saucepan combine the eggplant, tomatoes, onion, red and green sweet peppers, wine or chicken broth, basil, garlic, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 10 minutes. Uncover and simmer for 5 minutes more, or till vegetables are tender and nearly all of the liquid is evaporated.

FOR CHICKEN: Rinse chicken; pat dry. Place each breast half between 2 pieces of plastic wrap. Working from the center to the edges, pound chicken lightly with the flat side of a meat mallet to a 1/4-inch thickness. Remove plastic wrap. Sprinkle chicken lightly with salt.

In a large skillet heat the oil and paprika over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook for 4 to 6 minutes, or till tender and no pink remains, turning once.

TO SERVE: Spoon vegetables on plates and top with chicken.

I would give this a zero!
Never cooked with mineral oil in 50 years in the kitchen.Researched it and have found it is very bad for you.Since it is a petroleum product your body will not absorb it or the nutrients in the meal you are eating.That said,if you have a constipation problem it will help you, but if you are regular it could cause your guests and you some nasty Diaerria.Why eat something that will not help your body in any way?Maybe an anorexic super model would enjoy it but not us regular(in all ways)folks.
