I invented this one year after buying a case of figs and wanted to find a new way to use them. We grow garlic in our garden and I love to use the scapes as they are so delicious and pretty! This is an elegant dish to serve company but easy enough to make any night of the week.


4 Chicken Breasts; pounded thin
0.75 cup Goat Cheese
5 Fresh Figs
0.25 cup Onion; Chopped
0.5 tsp Honey; plus more for drizzling
Pepper; Fresh Ground, to taste
1 package Baby Arugula
4 Garlic Scapes; (in season) for garnish

Original recipe makes 4



Mix goat cheese and onion together until smooth. Add 1/2 teaspoon (or more) to form a smooth paste. Spread on one end of pounded chicken breast. Slice four figs and spread over goat cheese mixture. Roll up chicken breasts and place on baking pan. Quarter last fig and top each breast with one quarter.

Drizzle with honey and top with black pepper to taste. Bake at 400 for 40 minutes. Cover with foil and let stand for 5 minutes. Plate over a bed of fresh arugula and drizzle with drippings. Garnish with a garlic scape.
