Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Dredge chicken in flour to evenly coat. Brown chicken in the skillet about 2 minutes on each side.
Set aside chicken, and heat remaining olive oil in the skillet. Mix in bacon, onions, and garlic, and cook until onions are tender and bacon is evenly brown. Mix in dates. Pour in the chicken stock, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, and simmer 10 minutes.
