  • 8 ounces boneless, skinless chicken breast, trimmed of fat
  • ⅓ cup nonfat plain yogurt

  • 2 cups finely chopped broccoli
  • ¼ cup finely chopped red onion
  • ¼ cup chopped cashews

  • Ready In

  1. Place chicken in a small skillet or saucepan and add enough water to cover; bring to a simmer over high heat. Cover, reduce heat and simmer gently until the chicken is cooked through and no longer pink in the middle, 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board, cut into ½-inch cubes and cool to room temperature.
  2. Meanwhile, whisk yogurt, chutney, curry and cilantro in a medium bowl until thoroughly combined. Add broccoli, onion, cashews and the cooked chicken; toss to coat.
  • Tips for Two: Refrigerate leftover chutney for up to 6 months. Whisk with yogurt for a quick dressing, dip or marinade; serve alongside grilled meat, fish or chicken; blend with reduced-fat cream cheese for a zingy spread.
