Grilled Chicken with Strawberry-Peach Salsa


  • 1 large lemon
  • 3 teaspoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 3 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 4 4 ounces skinless, boneless chicken breasts, about 1 pound
  • 2 cups diced strawberries
  • 2 ripe medium peaches, peeled and diced
  • 1/4 cup minced red onion
  • 1/2 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 2 teaspoons minced jalapeno chili


  1. Preheat grill or broiler. Zest lemon to make about 1 teaspoon; set aside. Juice lemon to make 4 tablespoons.
  2. In a shallow bowl combine 2 tablespoons lemon juice, 1 teaspoon honey, garlic, 11/2 teaspoons oil, salt, and pepper. Add chicken, coat both sides with marinade, and let sit.
  3. In a medium bowl combine strawberries, peaches, onion, bell pepper, jalapeno, lemon zest, and remaining lemon juice, honey, and oil.
  4. Remove chicken from marinade (discard marinade). If using a grill, place chicken on a lightly oiled grill rack. If using a broiler, set chicken on a nonstick broiler pan and place rack 4 inches from heat. Cook 2 to 3 minutes per side or until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the meat registers 170 degrees F. Divide chicken and salsa among 4 plates and serve.
