Fruit and Herb Cheeky Chicken

The best time to cook is when you have just a few things of this and a few things of that.  You might be reading this and thinking I am absolutely nuts, but that is when you can be the most creative!

I had a couple fresh figs to use up, a nectarine, some cilantro, garlic… nothing major.  I knew I had chicken as my protein source and needed to use up the rest of the herbs and fruit.  Folks, I urge you- DON’T BE AFRAID TO PLAY IN YOUR KITCHEN!  Bright and beautiful things can happen!


  • 2.5 tbsp of coconut aminos to drizzle on top of chicken breasts
  • 1/2 lime to squeeze on chicken breast
  • fist full of cilantro
  • 2 finely chopped cloves of garlic
  • two freshly cut black mission figs
  • 1 freshly cut nectarine
  • olive oil to drizzle on top of chicken breasts and on baking dish
  • 3 lbs of chicken breast
  • sprinkle of Trader Joe’s Everyday Seasoning on top of chicken breast
  • 2 chopped scallions


  • Place some olive oil in bottom of baking dish and place chicken breasts on top.
  • Squeeze lime over chicken breasts.
  • Drizzle coconut aminos over chicken breasts.
  • Put chopped herbs on chicken as well as fruit.
  • I covered mine and let sit in the fridge over night and baked it the next morning.  You can let it absorb the flavors for just a couple hours in the fridge if you want.

Bake on 375 for about 30-35 mins until cooked all the way.  Check at about 25 mins to estimate how much longer.


Ready to enjoy
