Fig and Lemon Chicken
I tried this recipe twice, with very different results! The first time I used chicken breasts, and our friends were late so I left the chicken in the oven for an extra twenty minutes or so... I turned the temperature down and covered it. The chicken was dried out, of course, but the sauce was fabulous! It had thickened into a sweet-sour glaze and the lemons were practically candied.
The next time I cut the time short and covered the chicken to keep it moist, only to find the sauce had not properly cooked! It was vinegary and runny, although the chicken was moist.
The first sauce is now legendary in our family, so I will try again, probably with chicken thighs this time, leaving the skins on, and cooking it for the full length of time.
