Chicken w/  Prunes

Chicken piece (I like bone-in thighs or leg quarters)

Sauce:

3 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons silan or honey

4 cloves garlic, crushed

10-15 prunes

1/2 teaspoon baharat*

salt

pepper

thyme

potatoes, cubed - optional

sweet potatoes, cubed - optional

* may be replaced with cinnamon and/or nutmeg

In a bowl combine all sauce ingredients.

 

Place chicken pieces, skin side down in a baking pan, pour the sauce over the chicken, make sure it touches both sides of each piece.

Cover pan with foil.

Bake in 400f for 30 minutes, remove foil, turn chicken pieces so skin is up, continue to bake uncovered for another 20 minutes.

If you add the vegetables, add them after you uncover the pan and continue to bake for a minimum of 20 minutes or more if the vegetables are not done yet.

 

Note: You may bake immediately, but may also prepare the night before and let marinate in the fridge overnight before baking the next day.
