  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon ground turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
  • 2 tablespoons light olive oil
  • 2 medium Granny Smith apples - peeled and chopped into small cubes
  • 1/2 cup whole dates - pitted and sliced (I had a bunch of dates handy so I used 1 cup dates and 1 apple (unpeeled!))

Step 1

Combine 1 teaspoon of the cinnamon with the cumin, turmeric, chili powder, and salt in a large plastic bag. Add chicken. Toss to coat. Allow to marinate for at least 2 hours, preferably closer to 24. Heat up olive oil in skillet on medium heat. Add chicken.


Step 2

While the chicken cooks, cube the apple(s) and dates. I happened to have fresh, ripe Deglet Noor dates handy, which aren't the sweetest. Most likely you'll have easier access to dried medjool dates which have more flavor.


Step 3

You may also wish to start on some sort of side dish. I had some potatoes handy.


Step 4

When the chicken is done and cooked through, like so, remove and set on a serving plate.


Step 5

Saute the apples and dates in the same skillet for about one minute.


Step 6

Remember the teaspoon of cinnamon you haven't used yet? Add it now. Toss to coat.


Step 7

Pour fruit mixture on top of chicken. Serve
