Honey-Dijon Chicken w/ Peach Salsa
Take your chicken on a tangy jaunt from Atlanta, Georgia to Veracruz, Mexico, picking up heaps of flavor along the way.
Preparation time: 60-90 minutes
Cups of Fruits and Vegetables per Serving: .5
4 4-oz. boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
1/2 cup bottled, fat-free honey-dijon dressing
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper, freshly ground
4 peaches or nectarines, cubed
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
1 small red onion, chopped
1 tablespoon lime juice, fresh
Preheat broiler. Place the chicken breasts between two pieces of plastic wrap and pound until 1/4 inch thick. Brush honey-dijon dressing on both sides and season with salt and pepper. Place on the rack of the broiling pan. Place 4 to 6” from the heat source and broil for about 4 minutes on each side, or until a thermometer inserted in the thickest portion registers 160°F and the juices run clear.
Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine the peaches, cilantro, red onion, and lime juice. To serve, place the chicken on plates and spoon the salsa on top.
