Serves 4

Prep Time 25 min

Total Time 60 min.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1/2 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup pitted prunes
  • 1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup pitted Spanish green olives
  • 4 cloves cloves garlic, very finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • Salt & freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, trimmed (about 1 pound)
  • 1/4 cup drained capers

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Step 2

Combine wine, broth, prunes, brown sugar, vinegar, olives, garlic, oil and oregano in a saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Reduce the heat and simmer gently, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
