Now We Know Padma Lakshmi's Favorite Way to Prepare Chicken (It's Chrissy Teigen Approved)

The Bravo's Top Chef judge just gave us the coziest cooking inspiration for fall — or any season.

Padma Lakshmi is a fan of Nashville's famous hot chicken, but — this just in! — there is another style of chicken preparation that she digs even more. And if you're in the mood for some cozy recipes to cook up at home, this Instagram post from the Bravo's Top Chef judge may just be all the menu inspiration you need. 

How to Watch

Watch Top Chef Season 21 Wednesdays at 9/8c on Bravo and next day on Peacock.

On September 19, Padma took to social media to share a delicious-looking photo of Provençal Chicken in a cast-iron pan. (For those who don't speak French chicken fluently: This bird is typically dipped in flour and roasted with shallots, lemons, and garlic in a splash vermouth — and made with plenty of fresh herbs.) In her caption, the foodie wrote: 

"Roast Provençal Chicken. What’s your favorite way to prepare chicken? I like lots of herbs and lemon." (Hey, so would Jenni Pulos!) Well, it's tough to pick a favorite — but after looking at the photo that Padma posted, we're certainly willing to give this style of bird a try.

And, it looks like we're not alone. Fun fact: Cookbook author Chrissy Teigen is one of the thousands of social media users who "hearts" the post. Take a peek:
