Candied figs add an incredible contrast in color and texture when paired with a simple guava glazed chicken and served on a nest of baby spinach. The recipe is extremely easy to assemble.

Ingredients

Directions

Marinate the chicken breasts in 1 cup of the guava juice and 1/2 cup of white wine for approximately 15 to 30 minutes.

In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the remaining 1 cup guava and 1/2 cup wine. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook until the mixture is reduced to a glaze consistency, the time will vary. You want the glaze to have a thick, but not jelly-like consistency.

Cut the figs in half lengthwise, and coat the flesh with turbinado sugar. Brush with oil and then sear in a hot skillet, sugar side down, for approximately 1 to 2 minutes, until the sugar melts but does not burn.

Remove the chicken from the marinade. Grill or pan sear the chicken for 3 to 4 minutes, turn over, brush with glaze, and cook another 3 to 4 minutes, or until cooked through. Bring the glaze back to a boil after brushing the chicken. Simmer for 1 minute, then remove from the heat. Slice the chicken into medallions.

Place the spinach on the center of a plate to make a nest. Place the chicken medallions in the center of the spinach nest. Place the candied figs around the nest. Brush the chicken and figs with the remaining glaze. Throw the salt and pepper over your shoulder and enjoy.
