    Maura666's Note:

    NOTE: I found the original recipe uncredited on a random website several years ago, and AFTER posting this, found out that it is from the "Silver Palate Cookbook." This version is not the original; it's been altered according to my preferences. (If you have not seen this classic cookbook, check it out, but please don't make the rabbit recipes.) This is a yummy, impressive recipe with strong flavors -- lots of fruit, garlic, wine, and spices combine to make a luscious dark sauce! I have substituted raisins in place of the prunes, but prefer the original way. This dish has been a big hit with dinner guests, even those who are hesitant to eat prunes because of their "reputation". :) (The prep time is high because I like to marinade mine overnight -- actual chopping can be done in under 20 minutes.)

      I am in shock that nobody has reviewed this recipe. This is absolutely amazing. I prefer to use the dark meat of the chicken but either one is good. I had this dish at my friend's Aunts house in Miami back in 2000 and have been making it ever since. When I make it, I call it Miami chicken because as most of us do with recipes...I altered it a bit but not too much. Try this, you wouldn't be disappointed
