Why I Love This Recipe
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 know...it was fine, but that could be my fig ignorance talking. ENJOY!!!
Ingredients You'll Need
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 pound skinless, boneless chicken thighs, trimmed and cut into bite-size pieces
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 cup quartered dried Calimyrna figs (about 2 ounces)
1/4 cup chopped green olives
1 tablespoon bottled minced garlic
3 tablespoons sweet Marsala or Madeira
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
Cilantro sprigs (optional)
Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook 5 minutes or until browned, stirring frequently. 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.
