This recipe was inspired by my amazing Mom! She grows figs and gave me plenty of figs to keep me happy :) She also told me about a recipe she was going to make my dad involving chicken, figs and balsamic. Now of course this got my creative juices flowing. And this is how the Fig & Honey Chicken came to be! I did use figs, balsamic vinegar, and chicken. However, that is where the similarities end. This was an experiment gone AMAZING!!!!
