Champagne Vinaigrette and Fig Chicken

We were low on dinner options a few nights ago so I pulled a bottle of champagne vinaigrette salad dressing from the pantry and started Googling recipe options. Within minutes, I found this beauty from Trader Joe's. Since we didn't have a full chicken on-hand, I made a few adjustments. We ended up with one of the juiciest chicken dishes I've ever had in my entire life. So good!

The end result. Looks good, doesn't it?
Here's how it's made:

  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 1/2 bottle of champagne vinaigrette dressing
  • 1/2 jar of Dalmatia orange fig jam
  • 1/2 jar of Maille Old Style whole grain dijon mustard
  • 4 tbsp. melted butter

Preheat oven to 350. Place the chicken breasts in a 9x13 baking dish. Put the dressing, jam, mustard, and butter in a blender for 30 seconds, then pour over the chicken breasts. Bake in the oven for 1.25 hour or until the chicken reaches a temperature of 165.

If you're feeling adventurous, you could even stuff the chicken with dried fruit and cheese before baking. Maybe a gouda/cherry combination. Lots of possibilities!
