Servings 4


  • 1 1/2 pounds fresh figs halved
  • 1 teaspoon ground fenugreek seeds
  • 1 cup light coconut milk
  • 24 oz boneless, skinless chicken breasts cubed


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • In a food processor, puree the figs, fenugreek seeds, and milk.
  • Place the chicken in a 9-inch square baking dish and pour the fig mixture over the chicken.
  • Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until the chicken is fully cooked. (Do not overcook the chicken; it should be tender.)


You may substitute with dried figs. Soak them in water for 1 hour to reconstitute, drain, and slice in half.
This dish is great tossed over soba noodles, steamed spinach, or steamed cauliflower and broccoli.
