|Number of Servings:||12|
4 Skinless boneless chicken
1 1/4 Cup(s) Dried figs, halved
1/4 Cup(s) Dry white wine
1/4 Cup(s) Red wine vinegar
3 Tablespoon(s) Extra-virgin olive oil
1 Tablespoon(s) Garlic, chopped
1/4 Cup(s) Capers, chopped fine
1 2/3 Tablespoon(s) Dried oregano leaves
1/2 Teaspoon(s) Red chili pepper flakes
1/2 Teaspoon(s) Salt
2 Bay leaves
1/2 Cup(s) Dark brown sugar, packed
Cut chicken into 1-inch cubes. In a mixing bowl, combine the chicken
with the figs, wine, vinegar, oil, garlic, capers, oregano, chili
pepper flakes, salt and bay leaves. Cover and let marinate for at
least 30 minutes or marinate overnight in a ziptop bag. While the
chicken marinates (or 30 minutes before you are ready to bake) soak
the bamboo skewers in water to keep them from burning in the oven.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Assemble skewers with a
piece of chicken and half a fig. Stand skewers up in a casserole dish;
spoon the marinade over the chicken and sprinkle with brown sugar.
Bake until the sugar topping turns into a golden brown crust and the
chicken is white in color throughout, about 40-50 minutes. Serve while
hot. Note: This upbeat chicken preparation gains its flavors from both
the marinade and the brown sugar topping. Served in bite sized
portions, this is a terrific sweet and savory item for parties.
