Combine ingredients 2-7 in a mixing bowl. Add chicken and coat well. Transfer chicken and marinate to a zip lock bag. Marinate chicken breast 3-4 hours. Remove from fridge
Preheat grill to medium heat. Brush grill grates with a little oil to prevent sticking. Grill chicken for 6 minutes on each side or until internal temperature reaches 165 F degrees. Meanwhile add the fig glaze ingredients to a small pan to heat through.

Drizzle remaining glaze and top with remaining mint.

Sherri ... my hubby and I loved your Figgy Chicken. I discovered that I had a jar of fig spread that someone had given me in a gift basket, so that's what I used. The flavor was absolutely marvelous. This recipe is definitely a keeper for us.
