I am always asked for chicken recipes. I completely understand! Chicken has so much potential and is probably one of the most versatile foods out there because of its ability to take on flavors and different types of cooking methods. The sad news is, once we have a recipe we like, we stick with it over…and over…and over again. And we all know what happens when we eat the SAME food constantly, no matter how much you like it, it will become boring. More than any other food out there, I probably can say that I have the most fun inventing new types of chicken recipes. I call it “whatever you can find in the fridge put it in the chicken.” I usually always include a little leftover wine from Shabbat because it gives the chicken such a nice savory flavor. One of my all time favorite recipes is Chicken Marbella. The olives, wine, and prunes gives it that sweet and salty flavor making it incredibly juicy and savory. Enjoy all the flavors this chicken has to offer!
This recipe is great eaten alone, with rice/orzo or potatoes. And don’t worry if you have leftovers (which you most likely won’t), it is actually better, in my opinion, the day after when reheated or eaten cold.
On another note, I am having this tonight for dinner at my Shabbos table. This is a sneak peak for anyone coming tonight 🙂
