From Cooking Light Slow Cooker. This is a wonderful, flavorful chicken that is great over couscous, bulgur or brown rice.


  1. Brown chicken over medium high heat, 5-6 minutes, turning once.
  2. Combine broth through garlic in 5 quart slow cooker. Stir until well blended.
  3. Add onion, figs and chicken making sure broth covers chicken.
  4. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours.
  5. Great over couscous, bulgur or rice.

This was so easy to put together and we thought it tasted super. I loved the lemon figgy flavored sauce. One cup of broth did not cover the chicken in my slow cooker. I added an extra cup and even that didn't quite make it, but I didn't want to add more as I was afraid it would dilute the flavors. Didn't seem to matter. Chicken was very tender and full of flavor. Thanks for sharing a great recipe.

Very tasty, liked the mix of chicken and fruit. I did not include Alfredo sauce mix (Jennifer’s review) plus I only used 5 chicken thighs - the ones I had were quite large, could only get 5 in my 12� skillet and 1 cup of broth did not begin to cover them in the crock pot. I ended up using a total of 5 ¼ cups. After 6 hours on low I removed thighs, shredded and returned to the crock pot along with 1 ½ jasmine rice and 1 sliced lemon, covered and cooked for 1 more hour. Prep time was underestimated, but will make again

DBF and I both love this dish. I am making it for the second time today. I am using mission figs because that is what I have. The sauce is so delicious over couscous. I am thinking of making up ig dump bags of this to freeze so that if I have a busy day I can just put one in the crock pot before I go to work.
