Sweet & Savory Chicken

Ingredients

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 cup Mariani Pitted Prunes (3 ounces)
1/2 cup Mariani Dried Apricots (3 ounces)
1/4 cup Mariani Dried Cherries
2 tablespoons pine nuts
1/2 cup Cabernet Sauvignon
1 medium cinnamon stick
1/2 cup chicken stock
1 rotisserie chicken, cut into 8 pieces, drippings reserved

Directions

1. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet. Add the Pitted Prunes, Dried Apricots, Dried Cherries and pine nuts and cook over moderate heat, stirring, until the pine nuts are golden and the fruit is browned in spots, about 3 minutes. Add the wine and cinnamon stick and cook over moderate heat until syrupy, about 5 minutes. Add the stock and chicken drippings and bring to a boil.
2. Meanwhile, in a large nonstick skillet, brown the chicken pieces over high heat until the skin is golden and crisp, about 2 minutes. Scrape the dried fruit sauce and liquid into the skillet with the chicken and bring to a boil, turning the pieces of chicken until they are nicely coated with sauce, about 1 minute. Transfer to plates and serve.
