I made Liz’s chicken recipe on a cold, bleak day and took it into the office for lunch. A perfect balance of sweet and sour; the chicken, olives, prunes, wine and sugar create a warming dish without being heavy or too comforting. After devouring my generous serve I couldn’t help but dive my spoon into the baking dish, scooping up any remaining juice. My spoon was accompanied by more spoons, from equally impressed workmates discussing the ingredients of the sauce between slurps.
Here are Liz’s comments “this is an extremely delicious recipe that can be prepared in advance. The chicken is marinated the night before and only a couple of ingredients are added just before baking. Just serve with rice or couscous”.
