To change up the flavor of your next chicken dinner, opt for Chicken Marbella, a Spanish dish that flavors the chicken with briny capers, olives, white wine, and prunes. For the juiciest leg quarter results (and easy dinner prep), allow the chicken to marinate overnight. Simply bake the chicken, basting a few times to keep the Chicken Marbella moist and tender. It's delicious right out of the oven, but our Test Kitchen really enjoyed a squeeze of lemon to finish off the dish. Ingredients 1/2 cup prunes 1/2 cup pitted green olives 3 tablespoons olive oil 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar 3 tbsp. capers (plus 2 tsp. caper brine) 2 tablespoons fresh oregano 6 clove garlic, minced 2 leaf bay leaves 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper 4 leg, with skin chicken leg quarter 1/3 cup packed brown sugar 1/3 cup dry white wine 3 tablespoons fresh parsley 1 fruit (2-3/8" dia) lemon Directions Add the first ten ingredients (through black pepper) to a large zip-top plastic bag. Seal and shake to mix well. Add chicken; seal and turn to coat. Chill overnight. Preheat oven to 375°F. Transfer chicken mixture to a large rimmed baking pan, arranging chicken pieces skin-side up. Sprinkle chicken with brown sugar and pour wine around chicken. Bake about 45 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer registers 175°F, basting chicken 2 or 3 times. Remove and discard bay leaves. Transfer chicken to a platter. Top with juices and garnish with parsley. Serve with lemon wedges.
