    Elana's Pantry's Note:

    Chicken Marbella is a classic dish that some say is the finest to ever come out of The Silver Palate Cookbook. To make it a bit easier, I decided to adapt the recipe, reducing the marinating time and roasting a whole chicken instead of chicken parts. This festive dish would be great for the Passover Seder with its complex blend of flavors. In fact, this is what I'm going to be serving to our guests. Along with some Gluten Free Matzoh Ball Soup, of course Here's the full post:

      Great combo of flavors! I used cornish hens instead of chicken and balsamic vinigar instead of apple cider. Mix it all together and let it marinate for just under 1 hour. I omitted the nectar as well. My husband really like it and he is not a big fan of cornish hens

      I have made this recipe many times and is so delicious! I have even made it in the crockpot and it is just as tasty. It is a mixture of sweet and savory together. I have passed this recipe on to many.
