Yields1 Serving
Prep Time6 minsCook Time14 minsTotal Time20 mins
 ¼ cup Rabbi dates, pitted and chopped
 One small apple-peeled, cored, and chopped
 2 tbsp chopped dried apricots
 2 tbsp raisins
 1 tbsp grated orange zest
 1 tbsp orange juice
 ¼ tsp cayenne pepper
 ¼ tsp ground cardamom
 ¼ tsp ground mace
 6 ounce skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
 2 tbsp vegetable oil
1

Preheat an oven to 350℉ or 175℃.

2

Combine the dates, apple, apricots, raisins, orange zest, and orange juice in a small bowl. Season with cayenne pepper, cardamom, and mace. Mix well.

3

Place the chicken breasts between two sheets of heavy plastic (resealable freezer bags work well) on a solid, level surface. Firmly pound the chicken with the smooth side of a meat mallet to a thickness of about ¼ inch. Mound the fruit filling on the flattened breasts and roll up, tucking in the ends. Secure the chicken with toothpicks.

4

Heat the vegetable oil in an oven proof skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken breasts, and cook until browned on all sides, about 5 minutes. Place in the preheated oven, and continue cooking the chicken breasts until the filling is hot and the juices run clear, 20-25 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165℉ or 74℃.
