Original recipe yields 8 servings
The ingredient list now reflects the servings specified


  • Pat chicken thighs dry and season both sides with salt and pepper.

  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add chicken thighs and cook, 3 to 4 minutes on each side. Add figs, chicken broth, balsamic vinegar, and shallot. Bring contents to a boil, cover, reduce heat, and let simmer until chicken thighs are no longer pink in the centers and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the centers reads at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C), about 8 minutes. Transfer thighs to a serving plate and keep warm.

  • Remove figs from the skillet using a slotted spoon and place them around the chicken on the plate.

  • Add minced rosemary to the skillet contents, increase heat to medium-high, and allow contents to come to a full boil to create a the reduction. Continue to boil, stirring often, until liquid reduces to approximately 1 cup, 8 to 10 minutes. Drizzle balsamic reduction over chicken and figs and garnish with rosemary sprigs. Serve warm.

I used fig infused balsamic vinegar. It was a awesome dish. My husband ate it so fast I never took a picture. I will make this again. Read More

Nice flavor but not as special as I had hoped it would be. Probably not going to make this one again. Read More

very easy recipe! I love how the figs added a small amount of sweetness to the chicken. Can't wait to make it again Some modifications I would do next time: 1.) Chicken doesn't need to be cooked as long as the recipe asks. 6 minutes TOPS in the balsamic-stock solution. 2.) Reduce the solution longer. I did 13 minutes, but it could have gone to 15. 3.) Add a little salt to the reduction. Read More
