  • double this for sure!!! yummy!!

  • Tangy and tasty. Love how simple this recipe is to make. Took my oven longer to cook than the recommended time, but that was no big deal. Just keep an eye on it!

  • Is this really AIP? Between the vinegar in olives and capers, plus the histamines and sulfites in the 2 added vinegars, I’m not sure how this recipe is AIP. I had a serious reaction. it was super tasty, and easy to make, but proceed with caution.

  • Super quick and easy recipe, but I’m not sure it makes up for the bland meat and pale, flabby skin. Next time I will try marinating the chicken first and starting it skin side down in a hot skillet.

  • This was pretty good. I will repeat it. I like the fact that i have most ingredients on hand.

  • Amazing! The flavours just came together and made the most amazing aroma in the house, but it also tasted delicious! This will aways be on my menu.

  • A new family favorite – used the oven. My family was very skeptical about this recipe until they tried it and it is now among their favorite dishes of all time! I used raisins instead of prunes and white wine instead of the red, but it came out incredible. I baked it in the oven in a cast iron Dutch oven at 375 for around 40 minutes. Absolutely fantastic! I will be making this part of our regular routine.

  • Probably my favorite Whole 30 recipe! This is the best recipe and it is so quick and easy to make. I love the sweet and savory of the prunes & olives. The prunes caramelize so don’t worry about them tasting like when prunes come right out of the container! I have this at least once every other week!
