If desired,you may finish this dish on a grill.
Depending on the size of the pieces,remove the chicken from the oven after 30 to 45 minutes. Keep the sauce warm and grill the chicken over low coals for the last 15 minutes. Serve as below.
Prunes to the whole Family,right down to the Grandchildren is as well liked as ~~ potato chips ; )
I'm not surprised when we have family gatherings and they bring their own dish,that a prune doesn't show up in their recipe.
