Succulent chicken thighs roasted with figs and lemon slices makes for a satisfying and impressive Mediterranean-inspired meal. The slightly sweet and sour sauce is perfect to serve with rice, and helps to caramelise the figs and lemon. Easy, delicious and if you feel the sauce isn't enough it can easily be doubled.

Just tried this today and thought I'd share. I served it with plain rice and veg, but I'm sure it'd be nice with new potatoes and fresh vegetables as well! I have a large family with lots of little children who only eat small portions (this fed 2 adults, 5 children and 1 baby). However, it'd be more suitable I think for 2-4 adults or similar. It was very subtle in taste.

As far as herbs go, I think fresh thyme works best with chicken. I sometimes add four or five bulbs of green garlic (young garlic that looks like baby leeks) when it's in season and if I find it at the farmers' market.
