Prunes and Pepper Creole
1 cup chopped pitted prunes
1 cup hot chicken broth
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 chicken, 3 pounds, cut up
2 medium onions, chopped
1 medium green bell pepper, cut into 1" squares
1 garlic clove, chopped
1 can (16 oz) whole tomatoes, broken up
1/2 tsp dried basil
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 dried thyme

In a small bowl, combine prunes and chicken broth and set aside. Heat oil
in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add chicken and cook, turning,
until brown, about 10 minutes. Transfer chicken to a 13" x 9" x 2" baking
dish. Preheat oven to 375F. Drain all but 2 Tbsp fat from pan. Add onions,
green pepper and garlic. Cook, stirring, 5 minutes, until vegetables
soften. Stir in tomatoes, basil, pepper and thyme. Bring to a boil and pour
over chicken. Bake for 30 minutes. Pour prunes and broth over chicken,
stirring to combine. Bake 15 minutes more, until chicken is tender.
