Chicken Marbella- trimmed down

One of the most popular recipes from The Silver Palate, this recipe is perfect served hot or room temperature.  I write lots of recipes for Diane Magazine, which is part of the exercise chain Curves, a company that has changed many lives. I am making this recipe a perfect Diane meal. Serve with some brown rice or quinoa, high in magnesium.

8 chicken breasts, skin removed

4 tablespoons olive oil

4 tablespoons red wine vinegar

4 garlic cloves, chopped

1 tablespoon oregano

1 tablespoons capers, rinsed

1/2 cup pitted prunes

1/2 cup dried apricots

3 tablespoons chopped scallions


Combine all ingredients and marinate overnight. Remove from marinade, but reserve, and place on a baking dish. Drizzle with the marinade and sprinkle with a tablespoon of brown sugar and pour some chicken stock, low salt, reduced fat, around the chicken. Bake at 350 for about 50 minutes. Baste a few times.
