Chicken is roasted with browned butter and figs then topped with some sweet caramelized onions and tangy gorgonzola cheese.
  • 1 t olive oil
  • 6 cloves roasted garlic
  • 2 T butter
  • 1 to 1 1/2 C water
  • 6-8 chicken breasts
  • 8-12 figs, sliced in 4

  1. Pre-heat oven to 375F.
  2. Drizzle garlic with olive oil and wrap in foil. Roast for 45-60 minutes. Remove from oven. When cool enough to handle, squeeze pulp from 6 cloves garlic and mash with a fork. Set aside.
  3. Brown butter in a small skillet (watch carefully so it doesn’t burn).
  4. Grease a large ovenproof dish. Add water. Add chicken. Top with figs, salt, pepper, and then drizzle browned butter over.
  5. Bake uncovered for 45-60 minutes, or until internal temperature of chicken reaches 170F.
  6. Add onions and honey to a dry skillet. Cook over low heat for 30-40 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  7. Remove from oven and top with mashed roasted garlic, caramelized onions, and dot with gorgonzola.
