This combination goes so well together. I have made this dish at least a dozen times and each time I still love it. I like to serve it with salad this time of year as it lightens up the dish. This is also one of those dishes that you can prepare ahead of time, put in the fridge, then cook when you are ready to eat.

So if you’re looking for something a little different for you dinner table, try this. And if you’re not into this so much there’s a few other ones on the blog that you might like!

There’s the Mozzarella & Tomato Stuffed Chicken that my whole family loves and I make regularly. And another one that’s a bit similar is the Italian Style Stuffed Chicken Breast. Equally delicious.

Happy cooking friends and I’ll see you all tomorrow!

  • 4 Chicken breast
  • 2 medium onions peeled, halved and thinly sliced
  • 12 dates roughly chopped
  • 5 Cups spinach small amount reserved for serving
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a medium skillet, heat oil and add onion. Cook over high heat for 5-8 minutes, until browned. Reduce heat to medium low and caramelize the onions. This will take about 15 minutes. Then add chopped dates and cook for a further minute or so. Now add the spinach and remove from heat. Sir through until all the spinach has wilted.
  • On a chopping board, prepare the chicken breast by slitting open the side of each one enabling you to fill them with the spinach mixture. Fill each one with a few tablespoons of the mixture.
  • Put into a baking dish and bake for approximately 25-30 minutes.
  • Serve over a bed of fresh spinach.
