Oh my gosh! This is an amazing chicken dish. Sounds a little weird with the ingredients, but it is amazing and well worth the wait!

This is basically the Silver Palate cookbook recipe with some very good adjustments. I’ve made this w/adjustments mentioned (reduced sugar, dried oregano etc) but I also add 1/2 to 1 cup of dried apricots and use a mix of boneless thighs and breasts cut in half. Also, the brown sugar and wine shouldn’t be in the marinade but after being marinaded and chicken put in roasting pan, the wine is added and brown sugar then sprinkled directly on chicken. And finally, once cooked, the chicken, fruits, olives etc. are removed and the pan juices reduced by about half and then poured over chicken/fruit. It’s a lovely, delish entree suitable for company yet fairly quick to put together for family. Read More

This was a SUPER easy version of the classic and tasted delicious. I'm giving it 4/5 because the chicken turned out a tad dry - I think you might get better results with chicken thighs? But the marinade is amazing. We served over rice, and I think potatoes would be good too, orzo pasta probably delicious as well. Read More
