Roasted Chicken with Figs

Some times you try new things and you have no idea if it'll turn out or not. Tonight was one of those nights and I had no back-up plan for dinner if dinner failed. My fear was that the chicken would end up dry. Fortunately dinner did not fail and we are now happily full. 

Servings: 4          Total Time: 30 minutes

Prep ingredients. Throw everything together into a baking pan, nestling the chicken in with your veggies. Bake at 450°F for 20 minutes or until chicken's cooked through. Serve with couscous or pasta. We had ours over steamed green beans and sliced almonds.

2 chicken breasts, butterflied
1/2 large sweet onion, wedges
large handful of grape tomatoes, whole
handful of dried figs, in half (unsulfured, unsweetened)
1 tablespoon-ish garlic, minced
1 lemon, juiced
1 tablespoon-ish of balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon-ish olive oil
1/2 teaspoon-ish salt
