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


  1. 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.

  2. Mix together the brown sugar and cumin in a small bowl. Rub the mixture into each of the 4 chicken breasts.

  3. 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.

  4. Top each breast with the plum salsa and serve!
