Fruit can be a great addition to your dinner table too!
How do you feel about fruit for dinner? I can’t tell you how many times I use a fruit juice as a marinade for meat, but actually using the fruit as an addition to the meal is something you must try! This fig jam chicken with nectarines will win you over with it’s sweet, juicy flavor!
First make the marinade. I combined fig jam with a little olive oil, lemon and rosemary and coated the chicken. Next cut the nectarine into slices and set aside. I drizzled the fruit and asparagus with a little olive oil and some lemon juice, then sprinkled on the herbs and a dash of salt and pepper.
Bake the fig jam chicken for 30 minutes at 350. Add in the asparagus to that dish or in a separate one about halfway through the cook time. They should only need about 15 minutes in the oven. When there are about 5 minutes left add in the nectarines and walnuts, then top with some parmesan cheese.
I served mine with some lemon parmesan herbed quinoa. This dish is vibrant in color and absolutely delicious!
This fig jam chicken with sage and rosemary is such an easy way to change up the way you serve chicken at the dinner table. Especially since it is topped with the lemon parmesan asparagus and baked nectarines and walnuts- this is one you won’t forget!
