Chicken with Roasted Pears & Cranberries
2 1/2 cups wild rice (or you could use brown rice but I think wild rice is better!)
2 1/3 cups apple juice
1 1/2 cup low sodium chicken broth
1 TBS olive oil
2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breast halves, cut into 1 inch cubes
1 cup sliced green onions (or any kind of onion)
4 small (or 2 big) pears, cored and sliced
1 cup dried cranberries
1 TBS sugar
3/4 tsp salt
3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
Combine first 3 ingredients in a large saucepan & bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer rice mixture for 20 mins. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and onion, sauté 8 mins or until chicken is done. Preheat over to 450 degrees. Arrange pear slices in a single layer on baking sheet & coat with cooking spray. Bake pear slices at 450 degrees for 10 mins or until tender. Combine rice mixture, chicken mixture, pears, cranberries, sugar, salt, and cinnamon in large bowl. Toss gently.
All I did was add some veggies for a complete meal, but you could just pair this with a salad for a great and easy meal, too!

Not sure how I did this, but I accidentally took this pic! I like it, though, because it shows the details of this stunning dress that Chris got me for Christmas last year! Goes with my purple Loubs, too :)
Hope you all had a great weekend! xx
