Pat chicken dry and place in an oven safe dish.
In a processor, combine jam, garlic, rosemary, vinegar, oil, orange juice, pepper and salt.
Pour over chicken, making sure to coat both sides well and even under skin. Place orange slices and fig slices around chicken if desired.
Marinate in the fridge for one to four hours.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit convection (or 400 degrees Fahrenheit). Roast for about 45 minutes, basting halfway through. Check for doneness with meat thermometer (thigh should be 165 degrees Fahrenheit).
