Rosemary and Fig Chicken

Roasted chicken is a staple on almost every Shabbat table. With this Mediterranean rosemary and fig marinade, it will come out sweet and crispy every time.  We love the flavors that the figs and rosemary combine to provide, but don't worry we use fig jam so you can make it anytime of year.
