What's for Dinner- Marinated Chicken with Tomato Fruit Salsa

Grilled Marinated Chicken with Tomato-Fruit Salsa

Hands On: 30 minutes
Total: 2 hours 30 minutes
Makes: 6 servings (1 breast with 1/3 cup salsa each)

1/4 cup Ketchup
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup white wine vinegar
1/4 cup honey
2 Tablespoons Soy Sauce (I use lite version)
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
Non Stick Spray
1 can (14.5 oz each) Diced Tomatoes, drained or fresh tomatoes from your Garden!
1 cup finely chopped fresh pineapple, mango or paapaya (or combination)
1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro

1. Combine ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, honey, soy sauce and garlic in large resealable plastic bag; blend well. Pound chicken with meat mallet to even out thickness for more even cooking. Add chicken to bag; seal. Turn to coat evenly with ketchup marinade. Refrigerate 2 hours or overnight.
2. Spray cold grill and utensils with grilling spray. Preheat grill to medium heat. Combine drained tomatoes, pineapple, onion and cilantro in small bowl; set aside. Remove chicken from bag; discard marinade.
3. Grill chicken about 5 minutes on each side, or until no longer pink in center. Serve each breast with salsa.

Cook's Tips
Chicken may be cooked in large nonstick skillet. Spray cold skillet with cooking spray. Place over medium heat for 1 minute. Add chicken and cook about 4 minutes on each side, or until no longer pink.
