I've made this since Silver Palate was published and it's still a favorite with my family. Don't worry, no one will ever know there's prunes in it unless you tell them!~

I LOVE this recipe and the Silver Palate! It is v. easy and so great to make ahead. We like you use bone-in chx breasts or thighs to ensure juicy meat. The combo might sound weird, but the caramelized prunes, olives, and chicken are simply scrumptious. Thanks so much for posting!
