Ingredients
  

  • 1/2 lb. bacon
  • 1 lb. chicken livers cleaned & trimmed
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup dried figs chopped
  • 2 T. brown sugar
  • 1 cup dry red wine
  • 1/2 t. thyme
  • 1/4 t. salt

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • Cut bacon slices in half and wrap a piece around each liver, tucking the loose ends underneath.
  • Arrange on a foil-lined sheet and sprinkle with salt & pepper. Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes.
  • While livers are cooking, combine figs, sugar, and 1/2 cup wine in a small saucepan.
  • Bring to a boil; add thyme and salt. Reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes until thickened.
  • Blend in a food processor to make a thick paste.
  • Return the fig paste to the saucepan to warm. Slowly add remaining wine until it reaches a spreadable consistency.
  • When livers are done baking, turn the broiler on for a couple minutes to crisp the bacon.
  • Serve the bacon-wrapped livers with fig compote for dipping.
