8 - 10 chicken breasts, bone in, halved (can be skinned or with skin on) 
1 head garlic, peeled and minced 
1/4 cup oregano, dried (this is not a typo) 
Kosher salt & freshly ground black pepper 
1/2 cup red wine vinegar

1 cup pitted prunes 
1/2 cup green olives with pimiento 
1/2 cup capers and 2 tsp caper juice 
6 bay leaves 
1 cup dark brown sugar, packed 
1 cup white wine 
parsley for garnish 


Preheat oven to 350 F.

Combine ingredients except for sugar, white wine and parsley. Cover and 
marinate in refrigerator overnight. 

Place all ingredients in baking dish(es) in single layer, spooning 
marinade over. Sprinkle brown sugar atop chicken pieces and carefully 
pour wine around chicken (do not rinse off the sugar with the wine). 

Bake for 50 min. to 1 hour in preheated 350 oven.
