Preheat oven to 350°F. Rinse chicken and pat dry. Season to taste with salt and pepper and dredge well in 3 tbsp. flour. Melt 1 tbsp. butter in a heavy skillet (preferably not nonstick for better searing). Cook chicken over medium heat for 5 minutes on each side. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, add 1 tbsp. butter to skillet and cook shallots and figs for 5 minutes. Add remaining 1/2 tbsp. flour and cook for 1 minute more. Stir together stock, wine and vinegar and slowly add to skillet. Cook for 10 minutes, stirring frequently; stir in remaining 1 tbsp. butter. Place chicken on plates and top with sauce. Sprinkle with thyme. Serve with soft polenta and steamed vegetables, if you like.

Makes 2 servings.
Wine Suggestion
La Crema Pinot Noir - The smoky dark fruit flavors of this food-friendly Pinot partner perfectly with the intensely flavored chicken. Around $20 in our stores. $38 to $48 in most restaurants.
