Active Time:  25 Minutes
Total Time:  25 Minutes
  Makes 4 servings
1 cup coarsely chopped pitted dates
1/4  cup coarsely chopped pine nuts (pignoli nuts)
1/4 cup coarsely chopped shelled pistachios
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 cup dry white wine
In a medium bowl, mix together the dates, pine nuts, pistachios, and seasonings.

Cut a pocket in the side of each chicken breast half to make room for the stuffing. Divide the stuffing among the pockets and press firmly to flatten and compress.

In a large skillet or sauté pan over medium-high heat, warm the oil until hot. Add the chicken breast halves and sauté on one side, until browned, 5 to 7 minutes. Turn the breasts and sauté the second side, until cooked through and browned, 5 to 7 minutes more, depending on the thickness.

Remove the chicken to 4 dinner plates. Pour off all but 1 tablespoon of the oil remaining in the pan. Add the wine and bring to a boil over high heat, whisking briskly to scrape up the browned bits that cling to the bottom of the pan. Drizzle the pan juices over each portion and serve at once.

Grown-up food
I made this for dinner tonight, and it was amazingly good! Not for the faint-of-heart when it comes to spicy food, due to the amount of cayenne pepper, but perfect for us. Perhaps you could reduce the cayenne for those who don't like things quite so spicy. Also, I didn't have pistachios or pine nuts, so I used walnuts chopped fairly fine. Next time I'll try it as written, but it was really good with the walnuts. I live near a Date Palm orchard, and had fresh Medjool dates... awesome.
