Preparation steps

1.
Preheat the oven to 180°C (160° fan) | 350F | gas 4.
2.
Soak the figs in the marsala or madeira for 20 minutes.
3.
Heat the oil in a pan and fry the onion, bacon and pistachios until golden, then add the parsley, orange zest and season then tip into a bowl and leave to cool.
4.
Lift the figs from the alcohol, reserving the liquid, and finely chop, then add to the stuffing mix with the breadcrumbs and mix well.
5.
Lay the chicken legs skin-side down on a surface and divide the stuffing mix equally between them. Truss as neatly as possible with cook's string, tying to make round-ish parcel. Place in a roasting tin and roast for 45 minutes or until the chicken juices run clear when pierced with a knife.
6.
Meanwhile, coat the monkfish pieces in flour, egg and breadcrumbs mixed with thyme, then shallow fry in the oil until golden on all sides. Drain on kitchen paper.
7.
Pour the reserved marsala into a small pan, add the dates and reduce until syrupy.
8.
Serve the chicken cushions with the rice and slivered pistachios and the monkfish alongside.
