希臘菜—Kotopoulo Me Syko (Chicken with figs)





3 lb chicken, cut into 8 even-sized pieces


1 tablespoon olive oil


12 fresh figs or 12 dried figs, soaked in hot water for 2 hours


10 whole cloves garlic


1 large onion, thinly sliced


½ teaspoon ground coriander


½ teaspoon ground cinnamon (我沒放)


½ teaspoon ground cumin


pinch of cayenne (我沒放)


3 bay leaves


1.5 cups (375ml/12oz) ruby port


1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest


2 tablespoons lemon juice (我沒放)




  1. Preheat the oven to 350F. 
  2. Remove any excess chicken fat. Reserve the chicken giblets if there are any.  Lightly season the chicken. 
  3. Heat the olive oil in a large heavy-based frying pan over high heat and cook the chicken in batches, skin-side-down, for 5 minutes or until the skin is golden. 
  4. Remove from the pan and place skin-side-down un a single layer in a 33×23 cm (13×9 inch) baking dish with the giblets. 
  5. Scatter the garlic and onion over the top, carefully pressing them into any gaps and being careful not to squash the figs. 
  6. Sprinkle the spices over the top, tuck in the bay leaves, then pour in the port. 
  7. Cover and bake 25 minutes, then turn the chicken. 
  8. Uncover and bake for another 20 minutes or until the chicken is just tender. 
  9. Stir in the lemon zest and juice and bake for another 15 minutes, or until chicken is very tender.

    Sabrina: 我想就先生的”朋友”來說,還不致於會遇到這樣有偏見的人,起碼會碰在一起的,大概是相似習性的人們,有意見的,通常是一些在工作上,或是義工團體上”認識的人”,這樣的場合之下,遇到的人,什麼都有,我想我也不必計較太多,既然都已經決定離開,他們要怎麼想就怎麼想算了!希望妳的生活美好!謝謝妳的留言。
