Pan-Seared Chicken Breast with Fresh Plum Salsa
A mixture of sweet and spicy made in just a short 30 minutes. Plums are a juicy fruit that are in-season during the summer months but can still be enjoyed year-round. Make the meal complete with a veggie of choice, like fresh green beans, and a whole grain!
1 cup Chopped ripe plums
1 small Jalapeno pepper, seeded and diced
2 tbsp Chopped fresh basil
¼ cup Chopped red onion
1 tbsp Lime juice2 tbsp Brown sugar (I use the Splenda brown sugar)
2 tsp Cumin
4, 4 oz Boneless, skinless chicken breast
2 tsp Extra virgin olive oil
Chop the plums, jalapenos, basil, and onion. Combine them in a small bowl, along with the lime juice. Cover and place in the fridge while preparing the chicken.
Mix together the brown sugar and cumin in a small bowl. Rub the mixture into each of the 4 chicken breasts.
Heat oil over medium heat in a skillet. Cook each chicken breast in the skillet for 3-5 minutes per side or until the center is fully cooked and reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees.
Top each breast with the plum salsa and serve!
Serving Size: 4oz chicken breast with about 1/3 cup salsa
