Stir in the chopped cilantro and remaining ingredients except cilantro sprigs; reduce heat to medium, and cook for 8 minutes, stirring occasionally. Garnish with cilantro sprigs, if desired

Best served over yellow couscous. Does fine on rice as well.

One of the many great recipes from Cooking Light. This recipe calls for Calimyrna Figs. I don't know much about figs (beyond Fig Newtons). The only figs I could find at my grocery store were mission figs so I used them. I don't know how it might have changed the recipe....but as far as I was fine, but that could be my fig ignorance talking. ENJOY!!!
