This is a great recipe! I had a problem finding dried figs in a store, so I got a jar of La Cholita figs in syrup. I took the figs out and arranged them on the bottom of the baking dish together with lemon and lime slices. Now I did not waste syrup, so I decided to use it instead of brown sugar + water mix. In the same jar I added vinegar and lemon juice & poured over the chicken (boneless, skinless thigh cutlets). It came out really good! I had to adjust temperature (400 F was a bit too high, 375-350 F is better) and rotate thighs in baking dish 2-3 times during cooking time. Figs retained their shape and juiciness, and chicken formed a really nice dark red glaze on all sides.
Lemon and lime slices can be taken out after chicken is done, if you are not a fan of lemon zest.
