    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


    1. 1
      Add olives and capers to the container of a food processor; process until fairly smooth; set aside.
    2. 2
      Position oven rack so that it is in the center of the oven; preheat to 400°.
    3. 3
      Add balsamic vinaigrette, olive/caper mixture, garlic, oregano, bay leaves, and prunes in a mixing bowl; stir well to combine.
    4. 4
      Add in chicken tenders; fold in.
    5. 5
      Transfer 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.
    6. 6
      Sprinkle the brown sugar evenly over the chicken.
    7. 7
      Pour 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.

      This is delicious, as well as being easy to prepare. My whole family liked it (teenagers), and I think it is good enough to prepare for company. I threw in some golden raisins before I realized that I had prunes. I may leave out the prunes next time and just use raisins. I served it with garlic and herb couscous (from a box). This is a winner!

      I just threw my Silver Palate Cookbook out of the window.(only joking). This is just as good as their recipe and much easier to make. I want to give this recipe 100 stars, not just 5.
