✅ 1/2 cup red wine vinegar

✅ 1 cup pitted prunes

✅ 1/2 cup pitted Spanish green olives

✅ 1/2 cup capers with a bit of juice

✅ 6 bay leaves

✅ 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

✅ 4-4 1/2 pounds bone-in chicken pieces, skin on, trimmed

1️⃣ In a large bowl, thoroughly combine olive oil, red wine vinegar, prunes, olives, capers and juice, bay leaves, garlic, oregano, rosemary, salt and pepper. Add the chicken and gently toss to coat. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for 6 hours.
