A note about serious food allergies

The sweetness of fig can make any food sing, but combined with tender chicken, the arias are straight outta La Scala. The buttery rice and peas add a melody any diva would love to belt out.

    Cook the Chicken

    Pat chicken breasts dry, and season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper. Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add chicken breasts to hot pan, and cook until chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 5-7 minutes per side. Remove chicken to a plate. Tent with foil. Wipe pan clean and reserve. While chicken cooks, make rice.

    Make the Rice

    Place a medium pot over medium-low heat and add butter. Stir occasionally until butter smells "nutty," turns golden, and brown flecks appear, 4-6 minutes. For best results, pierce brown rice bag a few times with a knife, then break up rice inside the bag. Increase heat to medium-high and stir in rice and peas. Cook until warmed through, 1-2 minutes. Remove from burner and stir in Parmesan, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper.

    Make the Sauce

    Return pan used to cook chicken to medium-high heat. Add fig jam and ¼ cup water to hot pan and stir occasionally until slightly thickened, 1-2 minutes.
