      Excellent Chicken dish! Everyone loved it! I also peeled the figs and cut them into halves as they were quite large. Chicken was tender and very flavorful! Thank you for posting this recipe!

      I have made this recipe so many times, even one time didn't have figs and it was still good. Didn't have fresh figs one time and added dried figs. It is a great dish. Thanks for sharing.

      I love this recipe - it smells wonderful cooking and it's so unique. I didn't like the color of the skin or texture of the onions when I initially finished baking it, so I just removed the foil, cranked my heat up to 475 and let it crisp, but then my oven is slow, so often I have to make adjustments. I'll definitely make this again.
