Easy Chicken Marbella

By: The Food Hunter

Chicken Marbella is a classic 1970's recipe Mediterranean inspired chicken recipe. The original recipe requires marinating the chicken overnight. Since I seem to always forget this step until it is too late I can attest that the chicken turns out perfectly without being marinated. It is moist, juicy and extremely tasty. 

Give it a try!
