4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, flattened if very thick
Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
1 package Uncle Ben's Ready Whole Grain Medley Brown & Wild Rice; in Israel, one cup cooked pkged rice medley
2 large ripe but firm mangos, peeled, pitted and diced
1 green onion, thinly sliced
1/3 cup shelled, roasted and salted pistachios
3 tablespoons dried cranberries
pinch or dash cinnamon
pinch or dash allspice
Season chicken on both sides with salt and pepper. Stir together rice, mango, onion, pistachios, cranberries and spices in a medium foil pan or on a very large piece of heavy duty foil. Place about 1/3 cup of rice mixture in the center of each chicken breast. Bring in the ends and sides to enclose, then tie with kitchen string to seal in filling. Grill over medium-high heat for 5 minutes on each side, then place chicken on top of remaining rice mixture. Cover with foil or seal foil package, leaving room for air to circulate. Grill for 5 minutes more.
If desired, slice chicken into medallions to serve.
