Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

Instructions

  1. Start by cooking some chicken breasts. I like boiling them in chicken broth or stock, but feel free to boil in water, too. Boiling the chicken in broth, however, will give it significantly more flavor. Bring the chicken broth/stock to a boil and put in whole chicken breasts. Cook until no pink remains. Depending on the size of the chicken breasts, this could take anywhere from 15 - 20 minutes.
  2. While the chicken is boiling, put together your sauce. Whisk together greek yogurt, dijon mustard, and garlic powder together until well mixed. Add in salt and pepper, to taste.
  3. Next, stir in dried cranberries or raisins and cashews. If you're worried about the cashews getting too soft, you could add them right before serving!
  4. After the chicken is done boiling, I like to let it rest for about 5 minutes. This ensures that the juice stays in the chicken instead of spilling out when you cut it!
  5. Dice up the chicken and mix it into the sauce. Serve.
