This made a great lunch. I loved all the flavors and textures. It is quick and easy to make since basmati rice cooks so much faster than regular long grain rice.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine the rice and 1 3/4 cups water in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, covered, until the rice is tender and the water is absorbed, about 20 minutes. Fluff the rice with a fork.
  2. Meanwhile, combine the chutney and the remaining 2 tablespoons water in a small saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until chutney melts and the mixture is smooth, about 1 minute.
  3. Combine the rice, chicken, cranberries, pecans and pepper in a large bowl. Toss with melted chutney.
