Chicken Marbella Recipe

January 7, 2016

My family loves this dish and it is super easy. The flavors of sweet & savory jump in your mouth. We made this with gluten free spaghetti for the others that aren’t on a grain free diet. We had dates instead & used that but prunes is better ( both very good!)


Organic Chicken Thighs & drums

Apple Cider Vinegar


Olives ( green & black, pitted)




Bay leaves

Fresh parsley

White wine


1 In a large bowl combine garlic, oregano, salt and pepper to taste, vinegar, olive oil, prunes, olives, capers with caper juice, and bay leaves. Add the chicken pieces and coat completely with the marinade. Cover and let marinate, refrigerated, several hours or overnight.

2 Preheat oven to 350°F. Arrange chicken in a single layer in one or two large, shallow baking pans and spoon marinade over it evenly.

3 Bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour, basting frequently with the pan juices. Chicken is done when a sharp knife inserted into the thigh pieces, at their thickest point, run with clear yellow juices (not pink).

4 With a slotted spoon, move the chicken, prunes, olives, and capers to a serving platter. Pour some of the pan juices over the chicken and sprinkle generously with parsley. Serve remaining juices in a gravy boat.
