Balsamic Fig Chicken

I made a subtle change yesterday. Instead of Hello Fresh for dinner, I decided to cook one of the meals for lunch. To me, Hello Fresh meals scream "dinner" so much more so than "lunch". So, just to change things up, I cooked Balsamic Fig Chicken With Roasted Potatoes & Lemony Broccoli for our noon meal. 

The description provided by Hello Fresh is pretty typical: We’re big fans of pan sauces because they’re a simple way to add extra flavor to dishes. Here, fig jam, balsamic vinegar, and fresh rosemary mingle with the fond—the crispy bits and drippings left by the chicken. The result is a condiment that you’ll want to drizzle all over your meat and potatoes before swiping up every bit of sweet and savory perfection. 

This took some effort to make, mainly because of the pan sauce. I wasn't ever sure if I had reduced it correctly. But, I was pleased with the end result and my daughter said that it was her favorite Hello Fresh meal so far. I don't know that I'd say that it was my favorite, but I did enjoy it quite a bit.
