Merry Christmas from Germany!

Christmas is the time for delicious cookies, hot punch and tasty dishes. We asked our colleagues for their favorite Christmas recipes.

On December 6th, Georg Jennen (General Manager @  Mitsubishi Electric Germany) tells us how he rings in the Christmas season:



Chicken legs Marbella


“A dish that you can also cook very well for friends.
I would also call it “the somewhat different chicken”










Chicken legs Marbella

For 4 people (generously sized):

8 chicken legs or chicken breasts, cut three to four times to the bone.

5 cloves garlic, crushed

15g fresh oregano, leaves plucked off, plus more to serve

3 tbsp red wine vinegar

3 tbsp olive oil

100g pitted green olives

60g capers plus two tbsp brine from the jar

120g Medjool dates pitted and quartered lengthwise

2 bay leaves

120ml dry white wine

1 tbsp date or maple syrup

Salt and black pepper to taste




Place the chicken pieces in a large bowl. Add the other ingredients – except white wine and date syrup – and season everything with 1 tsp salt and plenty of black pepper (freshly ground). Mix gently, cover the bowl and marinate the chicken pieces in the fridge for 1-2 days. Turn from time to time.

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees convection.

Place the chicken pieces and marinade in a large roasting pan. Mix the wine with the syrup, pour over the chicken and roast in the oven for 50 minutes until the skin is golden brown and the meat is cooked through. Baste with the juices from time to time.

Remove from the oven and arrange on a large platter. Sprinkle with the fresh oregano before serving.
