2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Prep and brown the chicken

  • Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel; season generously with salt and pepper.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the chicken and cook, turning once, until lightly browned but not yet cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate. Do not clean the pan.
While the chicken browns, start preparing the remaining ingredients.


Prep the remaining ingredients

  • Peel and thinly slice the shallots.
  • Coarsely chop the dates, checking for any pits.
  • Coarsely chop the olives, checking for any pits.


Cook the vegetables; finish the dish

In the same pan used for the chicken, if dry, add 1 to 2 tablespoons oil. Warm over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the shallots and cauliflower, season generously with salt and pepper, and cook, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan, until the vegetables start to brown and soften, 2 to 3 minutes.
Add the chicken broth, dates, olives, capers, and red wine vinegar or white wine (from your pantry) and nestle the chicken in the sauce. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the chicken is cooked through and the cauliflower is tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Working in batches if needed, stir in the spinach and cook until just wilted, about 1 minute. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the chicken Marbella to individual bowls and serve.
