Wine Braised Chicken and Figs with Cheesy Polenta

It is starting to feel the tiniest bit like Autumn here in Oregon, and I am here for it. Give me all the sweaters, boots, scarfs, pumpkin everything, and particularly all the comfort food. 

This is the perfect cozy Sunday dinner recipe to prepare you for the changing seasons. It's fig season as well, and I love using figs in different ways. They add a nice pop of sweetness to this savory recipe, and really compliment the other flavors going on here. 

Although this recipe takes a bit of time, it is mostly hands-off and well worth it. If polenta isn't your thing, I think mashed potatoes would be lovely too. You want something that will hold all of those delicious juices from the wine and chicken. You will definitely want to use as much of those juices as possible, they were so flavorful.

If you make this recipe please #cozyeatsblog so I can see!
