Cranberry-Pear Chicken

  • 2 Tbs. flour
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • 1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 tsp. canola oil
  • 1 ripe pear, peeled, cored and chopped
  • 3 scallions, sliced
  • 3/4 C apple cider
  • 1/4 C dried cranberries
  • 2 tsp. coarse grain mustard

Combine flour with 1/4 teaspoon each of salt and pepper in zip-top bag. Add chicken and toss to coat. Heat 1-1/2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook, turning occasionally, until browned and cooked through, about 5 minutes. Transfer chicken to plate.

Add remaining oil to same skillet; add pear and scallions. Cook over medium high heat stirring often, until pear is golden, about 3 minutes. Add cider, cranberries and remaining salt and pepper. Increase heat to high and cook, stirring occasionally, until sauce bubbles and thickens slightly, about 3 minutes. Stir in mustard, return chicken to skillet and heat through, about 1 minute.
