Ingredients

  • 1/2

    cup chopped dates

  • 1/4

    cup almonds

  • 1

    tablespoon honey (and extra honey for drizzling on chicken)

  • 2

    tablespoons olive oil

  • 2

    tablespoons lemon juice (and extra for squeezing on chicken)

  • 1 1/2

    pounds chicken breasts at least 1 1/2" thick

  • 1

    teaspoon rosemary

  • 1

    teaspoon thyme

  • Garlic salt, to taste

  • Few pinches of black pepper

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a blender or food processor, combine the dates, almonds, honey, 1 tbsp olive oil, and lemon juice until well mixed. Cut a pocket in each chicken breast without cutting all the way through. Spoon some of the stuffing into each breast. Place the chicken breasts into a casserole dish. Drizzle with remaining olive oil, sprinkle with garlic salt, black pepper, rosemary and thyme. Finish off with a bit more lemon juice and drizzle each breast with a bit more honey (to your liking). Cover the dish and bake for 20 minutes. Uncover and bake until the chicken is brown, about 10 minutes. This recipe yields 6 servings. Serving size: 3 ounces.
