An easier version of the famous Chicken Marbella from The Silver Palate Cookbook. An alternative for those of us whose heart is willing but the time for long and involved preparation just isn't there.

Units: US | Metric
- 1/4 cup pimento stuffed olive
- 1 tablespoon capers, drained
- 1/2 cup bottled balsamic vinaigrette or 1/2 cup red wine and vinegar salad dressing
- 2 cloves garlic, crushed in a garlic press
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 3 bay leaves
- 1/2 cup pitted prune
- 1 1/4 lbs chicken tenders, rinsed and patted dry
- 1/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
- 1/4 cup dry white wine
- 1Add olives and capers to the container of a food processor; process until fairly smooth; set aside.

- 4Add in chicken tenders; fold in.
- 5Transfer mixture to a 13x9 inch glass or ceramic casserole dish; make sure chicken tenders are in one layer and not on top of one another.
- 6Sprinkle the brown sugar evenly over the chicken.
- 7Pour the wine around the tenders (not on top of the chicken, otherwise the brown sugar will get rinsed off the top of the chicken) Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the chicken has carmelized on top and juices run clear.
