Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C).
Step 2
Coat the Tyson® Whole Chicken (1) with Olive Oil (2 Tbsp) and season with Kosher Salt (to taste) and Ground Black Pepper (to taste) .
Step 3
Place the Lemon (1/2) and the Fresh Thyme (4 sprigs) inside the cavity of the chicken and put it breast side down in a large roasting pan. Roast for 30 minutes.
Step 4
Remove the chicken from the oven and turn it breast side up, baste with the juices from the pan, and season with Kosher Salt (to taste) . Roast for another 30 minutes.
Step 5
While the chicken is cooking make the sauce. In a medium saucepan heat the Olive Oil (1 Tbsp) on medium-high, then add the Shallot (1/2) and cook until opaque and softened, 3-4 minutes.
Step 6
Add the Garlic (2 cloves) and continue to cook another minute or two. Make sure not to brown the garlic.
Step 7
Add the Unsalted Butter (1 Tbsp) , Just Jan’s® Kadota Fig Spread (1/3 cup) , Balsamic Vinegar (2 Tbsp) , Kosher Salt (to taste) , and Ground Black Pepper (to taste) . Heat through until butter is melted and stir until thoroughly incorporated.
Step 8
After 30 minutes, remove the chicken and brush the entire top of the chicken with the sauce. Set the oven temperature to broil and cook for an additional 5-7 minutes until bubbling and browned. Depending on how hot your broiler gets, may need a little less or more time. Use what's left of the fig sauce to serve on the side or on cut pieces.
Step 9
The chicken is finished cooking when the internal temperature of the thigh reaches 165 degrees F (75 degrees C). If you don't have a thermometer, just cut through and make sure the juices in the center run clear. Serve warm with sides!
