Chicken Marbella

I have to tell you this chicken recipe is SO good. When I first looked at the recipe, because of the ingredients, it appeared complicated. NOT!!!! This is so easy! It does take planning as I let my chicken marinade overnight or at least prepare in marinade before I leave for work in the morning. This recipe is worth trying. It is gourmet and it makes a WONDERFUL company meal accompanied by rice and vegetable and some nice homemade rolls. :) Honestly, your company will think you spent a long time on this entree!

16 trimmed 6-ounce chicken breasts
2 heaping tablespoons minced garlic
1/4 cup dried oregano
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
Salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup olive oil
1 cup sundried tomatoes
1/2 cup stuffed green Spanish olives
1/4 cup capers
6 bay leaves
1 cup white wine
Additional chopped fresh parsley for garnish

Combine the garlic, oregano, 1/4 cup fresh parsley, salt and pepper to taste, vinegar, olive oil, tomatoes, olives, capers and bay leaves. Toss in the chicken breasts, turning to cover, and refrigerate for at least 3 hours.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Arrange chicken in a single layer in a baking pan, pouring the marinade evenly over all of them. Splash the white wine on top. Bake 30 minutes, until just done. Do not overcook, or they will be dry!

To serve, place a chicken breast on plate, and spoon some of the sauce with tomatoes, olives and capers on top. Sprinkle with a little more fresh parsley.
