Moroccan Style Chicken with Prunes

I cleaned out my desk a couple of weeks ago, and I found an old cookbook that I forgot all about.  I looked through it, and I found this recipe.  Of course, I did modify it for our tastes, and it turned out wonderfully.  Al really likes it a lot, and we both love the lemon in this.  I made it ahead, put it in the fridge, and cooked it the next day, but I would guess that this isn’t necessary.  But the chicken did get marinated throughly, and it tasted great!

After working all of my life, I retired in June, 2011. I try to use my extra time to rest, exercise, paint my fingernails, play with my 9 cats, spend time with my husband, Al, and cook healthy and lower fat recipies for us to eat. I try to use as many fruits and vegetables in my menus as I can cram in, sometimes to the complaints of the hubs - LOL! I am also making over some of my old favorites to be heathier with more vegetables in them, and less fat.
