Place the chicken pieces, garlic, thyme, salt, pepper, prunes, apricots, olives, capers, bay leaves, and wine in a large bowl and mix to combine. Cover and marinate overnight in the fridge.
Remove the chicken from the marinade and let drain well. Heat a small amount of oil in large heavy pot and brown the chicken pieces from all sides. Add the entire marinade and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat, cover, and simmer at low heat until the chicken is no longer pink in the centre and easily detaches from the bones, about 45 minutes.
