Cook Time
15 Mins
4 servings (serving size: 1 chicken breast half and about 3 tablespoons sauce)

This company-worthy dish received top reviews in our Test Kitchens because it's quick, easy, and simply unbeat-able in terms of taste. Use garlic powder instead of fresh garlic; it won't burn when you sear the chicken.

Prep: 4 minutes; Cook: 15 minutes

How to Make It

Step 1

Sprinkle first 3 ingredients evenly over chicken. Coat chicken with cooking spray.

Step 2

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook 3 minutes on each side or until browned. Combine fig preserves, rosemary, and wine in a bowl; add to chicken, stirring gently. Cover, reduce heat to medium, and cook 6 minutes or until chicken is done. Uncover and cook 1 minute over medium-high heat or until sauce is slightly thick. Serve sauce over chicken.

This is so fast and easy to make and tastes so good.  Definitely on regular rotation for me.  I paired it with green beans (which taste great with the sauce too) and a salad.

I loved this recipe - would give it 5 stars. BUT my husband found to be a little too sweet - hence the 3 star review. I wonder if using another wine (maybe a cabernet?) would cut down on the sweetness.

I served this to my family with the suggested grilled broccolini. Both recipes were outstanding! I loved the sweetness of the jam with the mixture of rosemary & port. Both are keepers and I definitely will be making again!

I make my own fig preserves and this is one of my favorite ways to use it. It is a family favorite.

Great taste for such an easy recipe! I used a fig/ginger preserve. It is very sweet, so choose sides carefully.

My family thought this was way too sweet. If I make again, I will cut down on the preserves and maybe use a tarter wine.

Very good. May be too "out there" for some tastes, so be careful when serving to others.
