Wow! Absolutely delicious and SO EASY... I did all the prep the night before, marinated in the fridge, and popped it in the oven when I got home from work the next day! I happened to be out of oregano, so I used basil and a little thyme. I also dislike capers, so I didn't use them. Everything else I followed to a t (but halved the recipe). It looked impressive and tasted even better - I got rave reviews. Thanks!

  1. Combine first 10 ingredients in a large zip-top freezer bag or large bowl. Add chicken pieces, turning to coat well; seal or cover and chill for at least 8 hours( but overnight is best), turning chicken occasionally.
  2. Arrange chicken in a single layer in 1 or 2 13 x 9 inch baking pans. Pour marinade evenly over chicken, and sprinkle evenly with brown sugar; pour wine around pieces.

  4. Remove chicken , dried plums, capers and olives to a serving platter. Drizzle with 1/4 cup pan juices; sprinkle parsley evenly over top. Discard bay leaves. Serve with remaining pan juices.
