Chicken Carabella Recipe - Gluten Free Back in the 80’s The Silver Palate Cookbook came out and helped people who couldn’t even cook, feel like a gourmet chef with some killer recipes. One of those recipes was Chicken Marbella, a combination of chicken, prunes, capers and olives, a dish that quickly became a dinner party standard.I wanted to give the recipe a little bit of a makeover with some more depth of flavor and of course I am always looking for how I can cut out steps and make a gluten free recipe even easier.This is my version; I added a touch of heat with crushed red pepper flakes, some brightness with fresh lemon juice and tossed in some dried apricots, all of which, in my opinion, rounds out the flavors better. To make the recipe simpler and to cut out an extra step, I used Baker Brand Prune Dessert Filling as the base of the marinade and sauce which allowed me to cut out the cup of brown sugar in the original recipe.This is my favorite kind of gluten free recipe – it is elegant enough to serve to guests and yet it could not be easier. It does require time for both marinating and baking but your fridge and oven are doing all the work (and you are getting all the credit).I like to use skinless, bone-in chicken thighs in this recipe but you can also use a whole cut up chicken or even chicken breasts.I call this recipe “Chicken Carabella”, just because I can but you can call it anything you want!
