Main Dishes

Chicken with Citrus Salsa

TIME: 19 minutes;  SERVINGS: 4

4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (about 6 oz each)
1 ruby red grapefruit
1 c cubed avocado (about 1 med)
4 radishes, thinly sliced
1/4 c chopped fresh basil leaves
1/8 tsp salt
4 leaves red or green leaf lettuce (optional)

Preparation

1. PLACE chicken in large saucepan with 4 cups salted water, and bring to a boil over high heat. Turn off heat, cover, and let stand 15 minutes or until a thermometer inserted into thickest portion registers 160°F.

2. REMOVE peel and pith from grapefruit with knife while chicken cooks. Working over a bowl to catch juice, free each segment from its membrane and cut segments into bite-size pieces, dropping them into bowl. Add avocado, radishes, basil, and salt. Toss gently to mix.

3. DRAIN chicken (discard liquid) and cut crosswise into 1/2 ” slices. Divide grapefruit mixture into 4 portions and add a quarter of the chicken to each, drizzling chicken with grapefruit juice. Serve over lettuce leaves (if using) and garnish with additional basil leaves, if desired.
