“I saw a recipe for chicken marbella in the New York Times magazine. It looked good so I looked for a lower fat version on the internet. I didn't use as much brown sugar as called for and I reduced the olive oil to a tsp. or two, to reduce fat. I used green olive without pimentos. Serve with coucous or rice.”
