Cranberry Orange Mustard Chicken on plateI love this chicken dish because it's so easy to make, yet it bursts with contrasting flavours. The tang from the mustard is nicely rounded off by the sweetness of the dried cranberries and orange. The soft chicken tenderloins soak up all the flavours nicely.
