Ingredients

  • 1 (12-ounce) package pitted, bite-size dried plums
  • 1 (3.5-ounce) jar capers
  • 1 (0.5-ounce) bottle dried oregano
  • 6 bay leaves
  • 1 garlic bulb, minced (about 1 tablespoon)
  • 1 cup pimento-stuffed olives
  • 1/2 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon coarse sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons pepper
  • 8 pounds mixed chicken pieces
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped

Preparation

  1. Combine first 10 ingredients in a large zip-top freezer bag or a large bowl. Add chicken pieces, turning to coat well; seal or cover and chill for at least 8 hours (overnight is best), turning chicken occasionally.
  2. Arrange chicken in a single layer in one or two 13- x 9-inch baking pan(s). Pour marinade evenly over chicken, and sprinkle evenly with brown sugar; pour wine around pieces.
  3. Bake at 350° for 50 minutes to 1 hour, basting frequently.
  4. Remove chicken, dried plums, olives, and capers to serving platter. Drizzle with 3/4 cup pan juices; sprinkle parsley evenly over top. Serve with remaining pan juices.
Note:

Choose a mixture of everyone's favorite cuts of chicken--such as one package each of bone-in breasts, legs, thighs, and wings--or purchase pick-of-the-chick packages or chicken quarters to equal 8 pounds.
