I always forget how much I like figs until I eat them. They are especially good in this super easy slow cooker dinner. The yummy lemon and Dijon sauce is perfect with the tender chicken thighs and sweet figs.
1 (14 1/2 ounce) can chicken broth
2 (1.7 oz) packets chicken Dijon recipe mix (like this one)
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
6 garlic cloves, minced
1 lemon, juice and zest
1 onion, quartered and thinly sliced
8 ounces dried mission figs, halved
2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts, and thighs
Couscous, to serve
Note: I couldn’t find the chicken Dijon mix. I substituted a 1 oz packet of turkey gravy mix and 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard.
1. In a 4 quart slow cooker, mix together the chicken broth, recipe mix, cinnamon, garlic and zest and lemon juice. Stir in the onion and figs.
2. Press the chicken pieces down into the mixture in the cooker.
3. Cover and cook on the low heat setting about 4 and 1/2 hours or until the chicken is cooked through and tender but still moist.
Serves 6 to 8

‘Far Away And Long Ago’, from Oakland-based band Foxtails Brigade, defies categorization. It starts off like a dream sequence before jaunting off into a clashing round of strings and things. Definitely weird and supremely good.
