Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook Time: 25 minutes


  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 apple, diced
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper on both sides.
  3. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the chicken breasts and cook for about 4-5 minutes per side, or until they are golden brown. Transfer the chicken to a baking dish and place it in the preheated oven for about 15-20 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through.
  4. In the meantime, rinse the quinoa under cold water to remove any bitterness. In a medium saucepan, bring the chicken broth to a boil. Add the rinsed quinoa, reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer for about 15 minutes, or until the quinoa is tender and the liquid is absorbed.
  5. In a small bowl, whisk together the remaining tablespoon of olive oil, honey, Dijon mustard, and apple cider vinegar to make the dressing.
  6. In a large mixing bowl, combine the cooked quinoa, diced apple, dried cranberries, chopped pecans, and the dressing. Toss everything together until well coated.
  7. Remove the chicken from
