You have to like chicken, prunes, capers and green olives in order to like this dish. Do I have your attention?
Yes — prunes. Before you pass on this post, let me tell you that the Chicken Marbella actually tasted very good with prunes. My problem with the recipe was with the green olives — they just didn’t seem like they belonged with this recipe. And, I LIKE green olives.
If I were to make this recipe, I would exclude the green olives but keep the prunes. They added a nice sweet flavor to the chicken. Very tasty!
The side dish we had was a Roasted Eggplant and Garlic Salad. Well, what can I say about it? First, I’m not a big eggplant fan although I have had eggplant parmesan and other vegetarian recipes that include eggplant that tasted okay. This one though — well, it was not my favorite. The eggplant seemed slimy. Seems like I use that term when things slip and slide in my mouth. (laughing)
To me, it was kind’ve like eating mushrooms and I’m not a fan of mushrooms either.
But you can try it and see if you like it, no? For people who like eggplant this will probably be a great dish!
Another day — another paleo dinner.
