Chicken with Onions and Figs
Total TimePrep: 40 min. Bake: 35 min.
All in all, this chicken dish was pretty tasty! I imagine that exactly how the onion mixture turns out flavor wise depends on how the large the onions you use are; I used three large — VERY large — onions, so while it made more than enough onion mixture to top all the chicken with, I believe the sheer amount of onion overwhelmed the other flavors (lemon, garlic, figs, honey) in this mixture. And I was out of honey, so I substituted real maple syrup, which was really delicious! I’ll definitely attempt this recipe again, but next time I’ll use smaller onions, and I’ll probably season the chicken with a little salt and pepper before topping it with the onion mixture. The chicken turned out incredibly moist and tender. Thanks for the great recipe, Helen!
I made this using boneless/skinless chicken breasts and orange juice (since I didn't have any lemon juice on hand). It was delicious! This is a keeper. Thanx!
