My friend Julianne is an amazing cook and mom. She is a nurturer, style maven, and true New Orleans woman who makes any recipe shine. One of my favourites in her rotation is Chicken Marbella, made using the classic recipe from Sheila Lukins and Julee Rossos’ The Silver Palate Cookbook. She made this for an intimate 40th birthday dinner she held for me.
This timeless chicken dish is a medley of savoury and sweet with the prunes and olives. It goes well with rice and roast Brussels sprouts, but can accompany pasta or mashed potatoes too. Or go low carb with zucchini “pasta” or garlicky green beans.
