Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • Fresh cracked black pepper
  • 8 (3 to 4 oz.) boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1/4 cup minced onion
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 3/4 cup fresh-squeezed orange juice
  • 1/4 cup white balsamic vinegar
  • 2/3 cup dried whole figs, halved
  • 1 orange, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 1 teaspoon chopped rosemary

Step by Step:

  1. Place flour in a shallow dish. Pat chicken dry with paper towels and sprinkle with pepper. Dredge chicken in flour and shake off excess. Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. When oil just starts to smoke, carefully add chicken and reduce heat to medium. Cook 4 to 5 minutes per side or until chicken is golden brown and cooked through. Remove chicken from pan and keep warm.
  2. Add onion to skillet and cook 2 minutes over medium heat until lightly browned. Add garlic and cook 30 seconds. Add orange juice and vinegar and bring mixture to a simmer, stirring to loosen browned bits in the pan. Add figs and cook 2 minutes or until figs start to plump. Add any accumulated chicken juice from resting chicken breasts. Remove from heat and add orange and rosemary. Spoon chutney over chicken and serve.
