Chicken Marbella

This dish is simply--amazing...
My husband, kids, and mom loved this dish when I made it for them last week. Even though it has unusual ingredients in it and it might be out of the ordinary, you have to give this dish a try.
Serve the dish with mashed potatoes, noodles, or rice.
I hope you really do give it a try and love it as much as we have.

Chicken Marbella
Serves 10-12

4 chickens, 2 1/2 lbs each, quartered (I used all chicken breasts) ( You could also use 8-10 chicken breast)
1 head of garlic, peeled and finely pureed (I just minced it all-it's a lot and time consuming)
1/4 cup dried oregano
coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
1/2 cup olive oil
1 cup pitted prunes
1/2 cup pitted Spanish green olives
1/2  cup capers with a bit of juice
6 bay leaves
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white wine (or cooking white wine)
1/4 cup Italian parsley or fresh coriander (cilantro) finely chopped

1. In a large bowl combine all the ingredients EXCEPT the last three on the list. Cover and let marinate, refrigerated, overnight.

2. Preheat oven to 350 F

3. Arrange chicken in a single layer in one large baking pan and sppon marinade over it evenly.  Sprinkle chicken pieces with brown sugar and pour white wine around them.

4. Bake for 50 mins. to 1 hour, basting frequently with pan juices.
