Chicken with Balsamic Fig Sauce

This is an outstanding recipe which we enjoyed very much. I write here my notes as I lightly changed the steps.

Combine chicken, dry thyme and salt in a bowl. Let sit 15 minutes. Fry the chicken with 1/” teaspoon olive oil on all sides until done (this takes about 15 minutes). Place the chicken in the oven at 70-80 °C.

Dissolve the fond  with the broth and place this mixture in the cup again.

Fry the onion in the butter until translucent, add the vinegar and after 1 more minutes give the broth back to the pan.

Add the figs stir and let simmer until reduced to half quantity.

In the min-time slice the chicken breast.

Serve the chicken with the fig sauce and top with the fresh springs-


  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 1⁄2 tablespoons dry thyme leaves, divided
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1⁄2 cup chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon butter, or olive oil
  • 3⁄4 cup onion, sliced
  • 1⁄4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 1⁄2 cup dried fig, quartered
  • fresh thyme (or savory) springs for topping and garnishing

Indonesian Chicken

At least 5 stars for this recipe!
For the marinade I used the ingredients as described and for the soy sauce I used the salted Indonesian one.
I made the same quantity of marinade, but we were only 2 today, so I used 2 chicken breasts.
After marinating about 2 hours I grilled the meat and I boiled the marinate to make it save again.
I placed the almost done breast in a mold with the marinade in the oven at 80°C until my husband arrived (about 30 minutes). For serving I topped the meat with green onions and chopped red pepper.
The chicken was amazing good and so soft. A real must to try!


1 tspcrushed red pepper flakes
1 Tbspfresh ginger, peeled and grated
2 Tbspfresh lime juice
2 Tbsphoisin sauce
1 Tbsplow-sodium soy sauce
3garlic cloves, minced
4boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (4 oz. each)

Sunny’s Lemon Curry Chicken

sunnys-lemon-curry-chickenSuper delicious! I prepared the sauce as described. I used skinless chicken legs, and I coated them with egg and breadcrumbs (as we don’t corn flakes for breakfast) and I mixed the remaining egg with breadcrumbs and I pressed this over the legs. As a light crust was formed I turned the chicken and I brushed it with the sauce. It turned out crunchy and super tasty. Next time I will double the the sauce fir more liquid


1/2 cup sugar
4 tablespoons lemon juice
1 1/2 teaspoons curry powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 egg, beaten
1 cup corn flake crumbs
1 chicken (cut up) or 1 assorted chicken piece, your choice

Herbed Chicken Paillards


This is the kind of food I really enjoy very much!
The winter is approaching and I was lucky that I could find all the herbs (except the thyme) in my garden. The marjoram is drying and I will see this only next spring again, but I found some more protected sprigs which I could use.
The long marinating enhanced the herbs flavor and gave the dish the last warm rays of the season. Thanks a lot for this great recipe


  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh thyme
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons minced fresh rosemary
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons minced fresh sage
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
  • 3/4 teaspoon minced fresh marjoram
  • 3/4 teaspoon minced fresh savory
  • Ground allspice, 1 pinch
  • Ground red pepper, 1 pinch
  • 4 (1 1/3 pound) boneless skinless chicken breast halves
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • Garnish
  • Lemon wedges
