Jerusalem Chicken

 

Jerusalem Chicken

Jerusalem Chicken
By Leann Albrecht

The first time Carl and I had this dish was at our local Chef’s Market. I inquired about the recipe but, of course, it was a “chef’s secret”. So we dissected the flavors then I went home and created my own recipe which is nearly identical to the flavors we originally savored.

I enjoy making meals that bake in the oven for two reasons. First of all, as it bakes, the aroma fills the house and preps your taste buds for dinner. Secondly, oven meals allow me time to keep working on other things until it’s done.

You will enjoy the wonderful Mediterranean flavors of this dish. Here, I served it with fresh steamed asparagus, a salad and fresh bread.

(Prep time – 5 minutes / bake time 2 hours)

4 pounds of chicken pieces
1 1/2 oz capers
1 5 3/4 oz jar of olives – any kind
20 bay leaves
20 dried prunes

Arrange the chicken in large baking dish. Pour entire jar of olives and juice over chicken. Sprinkle capers on top. Place the prunes and bay leaves in around and under chicken. Do not add salt or any other liquids.
Cover dish and bake at 325 degrees for 2 hours or until chicken is tender and falling apart.

For my international friends, there is a conversion chart below.

  5. Dear Leann,

    just came across this delicious recipe and had to recommend all the way from the UK – You seemed to be blessed with good eateries in TN.
