Servings: 4


4 4-ounce 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)


  1. Adjust the rack on your broiler so that the pan will be 4 to 6 inches from the heat source. Then, heat broiler.

  2. Place the chicken breasts between two pieces of plastic wrap and pound (with a heavy skillet or meat tenderizer)  until 1/4 inch thick.

  3. Brush honey-dijon dressing on both sides of the chicken and season both sides with salt and pepper.

  4. Place chicken on the broiling pan rack.

  5. Broil chicken for about 4 minutes on each side, or until a thermometer inserted in the thickest portion registers 165°F and the juices run clear.

  6. Meanwhile, combine the peaches, cilantro, red onion, and lime juice in a medium bowl.

  7. Place the cooked chicken on plates and spoon the salsa on top.
