slow,cooked,chicken,with,figs

Even if you do not like figs, this chicken is melt in your mouth and delicious. Cooking the chicken slow makes it so succulent and juicy - well worth the time.

By the time they are cooked 1 hours, they no longer taste like figs anyway, but this dish has the most delicious flavour, and with plenty of gravy, making it ideal to serve with boiled potatoes to lap up this gravy. You could also take out some of the gravy and cook some rice in it as there is a lot of gravy.

Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 1 hour 50 minutes
Serves: 4 - 5

Ingredients
900 g chicken pieces - thighs and lovely legs
1 cups chicken stock
200 ml apple juice (available at supermarkets)
1 cup figs, chopped
3 tbsp coconut sugar (or brown sugar)
1 shallot, or onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbsp ginger
1 tsp cinnamon
tsp ground cloves
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp coriander

Method
Rub some salt and pepper onto the chicken pieces.

The meat is literally falling off the bones at this point!


I had too much sauce so just before it was ready, I took a lot of the sauce out and boiled it till it reduced to about half.

I served it with a spinach and rice casserole.

Thanks, Finy. Do you think dried figs or fresh apples or pears would be better? Sorry to be asking another question. Last one - promise! Tess

Pears would go nicely as texture is more like the fresh fig and it has that slight sweetness that the figs also have.
I dont mind questions!

Thanks, Finy,
I thought so too. I'll use Beurre Bosc so they don't break down too quickly. You are very kind.
Best wishes, Tess

Hi Finy! I love your recipes! I also love figs but they are too expensive. Could I use dried ones or fresh pears or apples instead? Kind regards, Tess
Thanks! Yes, soak the dried ones overnight before you use them, then drain and use them - will be OK.
Yes they are so expensive, I actually found all these growing wild in a spot where there are perhaps 30 trees!
