Roasted Chicken With Olives and Prunes (Chicken Marbella)

Roasted Chicken With Olives and Prunes (Chicken Marbella) created by DeliciousAsItLooks

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: http://www.elanaspantry.com/roasted-chicken-with-olives-and-prunes/

    Used maple syrup instead of agave nectar.

    This is an interesting dish. Not sure about the combination of prunes and olives. I have to admit it's not my favorite. The chicken was delicious though, especially served with the liquid drizzled on top. I used maple syrup instead of agave and served with mashed potatoes and a salad.
