Jalapeno pepper gives a little kick to the fruit salsa. Preparing this tropical-tasting dish in a skillet keeps your kitchen cool, which is especially nice on a summer day.

"We loved this recipe. Next time I will leave the garlic off the chicken and no jalepeno and onion in the fruit salsa and it will be fantastic!"
