Chicken Mirabella

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Recipe Reader

This is very good and simple to make. It needs to marinate overnight or you can make it and freeze the chicken right in the marinade, for OAMC. Simply defrost in the refrigerator overnight. I serve this over couscous, and spoon the broth over the top. NOTE: No need to keep the brown sugar separate, it can be included right into the marinade.

So easy to make and loved the combination of unique flavors. I originally discovered this dish through Dream Dinners and have to admit it's spot on.
Instead of adding the ingredients whole (i.e. plums & olives), I chopped them all up to mix better.

UPDATE- I was too lazy to let all the ingredients marinate and then cook the next day, so I threw everything in the crock pot for a few hours (I quadrupled at least all the ingredients apart from the chicken to make it more like a tagine). When it was finished I shredded the chicken and it was absolutely AMAZING!! I will definitely only cook it this way from now on.
