Serve with couscous and Parmesan cheese. Ingredients 12 skinless, bone-in chicken thighs (about 4 1/2 pounds)1 cup pitted dates, halved1 cup sliced pitted green olives2 tablespoons olive oil2 tablespoons white wine vinegar4 cloves garlic, minced1/2 teaspoon salt1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper1/4 cup dry white wine or dry vermouth1 tablespoon honey Instructions Mix chicken thighs, dates, olives, oil, vinegar, garlic, salt and pepper in a 13-by-9-inch baking dish. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours or overnight. Preheat oven to 350F. Toss chicken mixture; pour wine over all and drizzle with honey. Bake uncovered, basting often, about 1 1/2 hours, until browned and fragrant. Recipe by Bruce Weinstein and Mark Scarbrough.
