  • Preheat the oven to 400°. Blend the butter with the dates and lemon juice and season with salt and pepper.

  • Remove the chicken from the buttermilk and pat dry. Season with salt and pepper. In a large, ovenproof nonstick skillet, heat the olive oil. Add the chicken breasts and cook over moderately high heat until browned on the bottom, about 3 minutes. Turn the breasts and roast them in the oven for about 10 minutes, or until just cooked through. Serve with the date butter.
