Chicken Marbella is one of my favorite dishes for entertaining! It’s gluten-free and dairy-free, and I have yet to meet a guest who doesn’t love it or isn’t delighted by the newly discovered pairing of flavors. The unusual briny-sweet combination of capers and prunes may seem risky but trust me, and decades of Marbella enthusiasts, “winner-winner chicken dinner.”
Feel free to get creative and try dates or apricots instead of prunes! I love skin-on, bone-in chicken thighs for this recipe. They become more tender and flavorful as they cook, the skin browns and gets a bit crispy, and it won’t dry out if you get distracted with your guests. It does require some planning, but it makes hosting dinner a breeze. I marinate the chicken up to two days in advance.
