I remember this Chicken Marbella as one of the first recipes my mother taught me to make just before I was leaving for college. She was not about having ramen for dinner every night and this recipe quickly spread around campus. Simple ingredients and easy to make for those nights when you’re missing home.
Chicken thighs roasted with smashed garlic, oregano, red wine vinegar, prunes, olives, capers and dry white wine. The sauce is sweet and easy and I love it!
