Tawny ports are wines made from red grapes that are aged in wooden barrels. The exposure to wood imparts “nutty” flavors to the wine, which can be sweet or medium dry. Port is typically served at the end of a meal, but in this simple recipe it creates a luscious sauce that complements the rich dark chicken and fresh figs.
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 5 to 8 (20 ounces) Just Bare Boneless Skinless Chicken Thighs
- Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
- 2 shallots, finely chopped
- 1 cup Tawny port
- 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch, dissolved in 2 tablespoons water
- 1/2 pound ripe fresh figs (about 8), stemmed, halved
