From: Jestei
Prep Time: 20 Mins Total Time: 20 Mins


  • 2 tablespoons Extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 pinches kosher salt
  • 2 pinches freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 chicken breast, pounded to 1/4″ thickness
  • 5 black mission figs, sliced in half
  • 1/2 cup light red wine
  • 1 teaspoon honey


  1. Heat 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil in a non-stick saute pan over medium-high heat. Sprinkle a pinch of salt and pepper on both sides of the chicken breast.
  2. Saute the chicken 4-5 minutes on either side until cooked through with a nice gold hue. Set chicken on plate to rest while you prepare the figs.
  3. In the same saute pan, heat the remaining tablespoon of oil over medium heat. Place the figs in the pan, cut side down. Saute for 3-4 minutes, turning the figs occasionally, until slightly golden.
  4. Add the red wine, being careful to avoid splatters, as well as pinches of salt and black pepper, and honey. Quickly cook for 2-3 minutes until the red wine reduces into a loose syrup.
  5. Spoon the figs and red wine reduction over the chicken and serve immediately.
