Prepare the Chicken

1. In a small bowl, add dates with enough warm water to cover. Soak for 20 minutes or until skins peel off easily. Remove skins and pits.
2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and lightly spray a baking pan with cooking spray.
3. In a food processor or blender, combine dates, orange juice, garlic, thyme, extra virgin olive oil, vinegar, cinnamon, and cumin and blend until smooth. In a large bowl combine chicken with date glaze and toss to combine.
4. Spread chicken pieces out in a single layer on prepared baking pan and bake at 350°F for 25 minutes. Flip and bake another 25 minutes. Remove baking pan from the oven and flip chicken pieces once more, skin side up and spray with cooking spray. Broil on high for 3 to 5 minutes to brown.


Serve with sauteed leeks and spinach.
