The smell of this dish cooking filled every room of the house and had my mouth watering. It tasted wonderful. My chicken took about ten minutes longer to cook, possibly because it was a little bigger than the recipe recommended. Once done, the chicken was juicy and infused with the flavors of the sherry and fig.
