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.


  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3/4 cup pineapple tidbits, drained
  • 1/2 cup quartered fresh strawberries
  • 1 kiwifruit, peeled, quartered and sliced
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup orange juice


  1. In a small bowl, combine the oil, salt, pepper and garlic. Spread over one side of each chicken breast.
  2. In a large skillet, saute chicken seasoned side down in butter for 4-6 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 170°. Remove chicken to serving platter; keep warm.
  3. Meanwhile, for salsa, in a small bowl, combine the fruit, onion and pepper; set aside. Combine cornstarch and juice until smooth; gradually stir into skillet. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat; pour over fruit mixture and gently toss to coat. Serve with chicken.
