Island Chicken with Fruit Salsa

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

A tropical pineapple mango salsa does double duty as marinade and relish in this spicy chicken treasure.

INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):


  • In a bowl, mix the pineapple and reserved juice, mangos, peppers, cilantro, lime juice and pulp, orange juice, rum, and garlic. Let stand for one hour before adding chicken.
  • Strain juice from some of the salsa, and set aside to use for topping the chicken. Marinate the chicken breast halves in the bowl with the remaining salsa mixture for 2 to 6 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  • Discard salsa used for marinating, and bake chicken for 30 minutes in the preheated oven, or until chicken juices run clear. Top with reserved salsa to serve.
