What to serve with Chicken Marbella?

Kelly | Jan 6, 2003 08:19 AM

I'm planning on serving Chicken Marbella (chicken marinated in red wine vinegar, brown sugar, garlic, bay leaves, oregano, capers, olives and prunes) from the Silver Palate cookbook tomorrow -- say what you will about the authors' occasional descent into preciousness, the dish is an old favorite ... but I've never been really satisfied with the accompaniments I've traditionally chosen -- either orzo or rice, plain and unadulterated.

Does anyone have the side dish of my dreams? Is it a matter of doctoring up the aforementioned items, or should I branch out into the potato kingdom, or be radical and avoid starches altogether?

All suggestions welcome ...
