Rub the chicken breast with 1/4 teaspoon of ground black pepper, and salt. Let rest for 5 minutes.
Heat 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil over medium-low heat. Sear the chicken until golden on both sides. Remove from heat, allow to cool down, and chop into bite-sized chunks.
Make the dressing: In a small bowl, whisk together the mustard, Greek yogurt, mayonnaise, and 1/4 teaspoon of ground black pepper.
Toss the chicken chunks, celery, pecans, red onion, pickle relish, and cranberries together with the dressing.
Transfer the chicken salad onto serving plates, sprinkle with parsley, and serve.
