hi nan,

 i make chicken marbella ALOT for catered parties that are served buffet style. It holds so well and is just a delight to eat. I like to serve it with long grain and wild rice pilaf with dried cranberries and toasted slivered almonds added...sometimes lentils too

another thought, which i have not done with the marbella, but think would be interesting if you are serving it immediately and not trying to hold it...a soft polenta...maybe add a bit of rosemary

Oh My, Was going with the couscous, but the polenta sounds absolutlely amazing!!!

Only have one guest, so may freeze a portion and have with couscous or orzo later?

Thanks to both of you,

Have a super weekend,

Nan

And wild rice with cranberries--do I need to get back to work or what??? I could live for a week out of my little freezer now!

nan, 

looking at my earlier post i just wanted to clarify that i add lentils to the wild rice sometimes, not lentils being the side.....if you haven't made this dish before, i promise you will love it. i think because of all the 'stuff' in the dish, it needs a substantial bed to sit on and something that will hold up to the wonderful juices and fruits.....cheers!

Joey is wonderful Chef, her ideas are terrific !  Go with your basic instinct.....you can always plan for future meals. You always have great ideas with food pairings and that is one thing I have always enjoyed.

Have a wonderful weekend Nan...... I enjoy your posts !
