Oh, my gosh, what a treat. Even my uber picky DH who doesn't like anything enjoyed this (loof, thats a standing ovation!). It all came together very smoothly and with wonderful aroma and flavor. I'll double the figs next time because I love them and they were a grand addition to the chicken. Made for ZWT 8, Spain.
