This was a delicious dish that a dear friend of mine, MJ, cooked for me one evening. MJ is a Breast Cancer Thriver and has totally changed her lifestyle after her cancer experience. She says that The 7 Essentials way of life has dramatically improved her health. This recipe is simple and can be prepared the night before or several hours ahead of time . The olive oil and the white wine ( if you choose to add some) give it a very Mediterranean flavor. The prunes add a bit of sweetness that creates a very nice sauce to pour over quinoa or vegetables. As always, try to consume chicken that is free range and hormone, antibiotic free. Bon Appetit!
In a medium casserole dish, combine the following:
6 cloves of crushed garlic
2 tbsp. of dried oregano
1 tsp. of Himalyan salt
1/2 tsp. of cayenne pepper
1/4 cup raw apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup of white wine (optional)
1/2 cup pitted prunes
1 cup Kalamati Olives, cut in half
1/4 cup capers with 1 tbsp. caper juice
Gently combine and mix.
Place 4 chicken breasts or 1 small whole chicken into the dish. Spoon the marinade over the chicken several times. Cover and let it marinade for a few hours or over night.
Bake the chicken dish at 350 F for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until the temperature reaches 175 F in the breast. Baste several times with the marinade.
Serve with quinoa and a side vegetable. Pour the marinade over the quinoa. Enjoy!
