Baked Figs with Goat's Cheese Balsamic and Pistachios

Sweet and Jammie Turkish Black Bursa figs.  Warm from the oven having been baked with pistachios and chives, drizzled with Balsamic vinegar.
The figs were from M&S - they sell them ready to eat and they are totally Delicious.

Baked in the oven of you can put them on the BBQ.  They not only look good, but they are also very easy to do. 

Per person you will need:
a square of kitchen foil about 10x10 inches
1 ripe fig 
a small dollop of soft goats cheese 
a small handful of pistachios - roughly chopped
a drizzle of Balsamic vinegar
a small amount of freshly snipped chives - use kitchen scissors to snip
How to do it:
Preheat your even to 200C/400F or Gas 6
With a sharp knife, cut a cross in each fig - taking care not to slice right the way through.
Put each fig in the middle of a square of kitchen foil.
Carefully open out each fig and put a dollop of goats cheese inside.
Sprinkle with chopped pistachios.  
Drizzle with a little Balsamic vinegar and then sprinkle over the snipped chives.
Pull up the sides of the foil to make a parcel.
Put them onto a baking sheet into a preheated oven and bake for about 15 minutes.
Serve immediately.
  You can serve them in the foil if you wish as long as you didn't buy cheap foil that will tear easily - not a good idea if everyone gets a mouthful of foil!
