How to Make The Chicken Marbella Recipe with Olives from Spain

By Gracie Carroll

When it comes to olives, people often love ‘em or hate ‘em. Personally, I’m on team LOVE and always have been — even since I was a kid! I could seriously eat them all day, every day, with every meal. However, not every olive is the same, and there is a significant difference in taste and texture when you buy high quality olives vs. low quality. As a huge fan of all things Spanish (and especially anything related to their wine and food) olives from Spain have always topped my list as the best you can get. Apparently I’m not alone, because just about 1 out of 2 olives consumed in Canada come from Spain and that might just be why they are the country’s top pick for the best olives!

Working with Olives from Spain to create a recipe was a welcomed opportunity and a total no-brainer for me. The only challenge was narrowing down my favourite ways to enjoy their olives to one single recipe. Since I received a request to create a recipe with olives that could be enjoyed by everyone on “game night”, I decided to share one of the classics (and a personal favourite) the Chicken Marbella Recipe from the cherished Silver Palate Cookbook, with the game night-friendly twist of using chicken wings instead of whole chickens.

See below for how to make this sweet, savoury and tangy recipe that’s sure to be your new favourite way to enjoy wings on game night, or not!

Chicken Marbella with Spanish Gordal Olives

In this recipe I used Fleshy green Gordal olives from Spain that’s a world-famous variety and commonly served as a table olive. The recipe below serves 10 but you can easily cut it in half, or even quarter it depending on the size of your crowd. Feel free to use whole chickens as the original recipe requires, or substitute with chicken wings.

Serves: 10
