5. Roasted chicken with figs

This rosemary- and basil-scented chicken, roasted with figs at their peak of ripeness, was a bit of a spontaneous venture by recipe author Miriam Kresh. She likes to prepare figs by halving them and drizzling them with sweet cream for a luxurious breakfast, or just rinsed and eaten as they are. But figs spoil quickly, and dinner was imminent. So she decided to roast them together with chicken, creating a golden-brown masterpiece. Find her recipe, No. 5 on our list, here.
