• SALSA:
  • 2 cups chopped, cored Gala apples
  • 1 Anaheim chili pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • salt and black pepper
  • GRILLED CHICKEN:
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 1/4 cup apple juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lime zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 whole boneless, skinless chicken breasts

Directions:

1. Prepare Salsa: In medium bowl, combine apples, chili pepper, onion, lime juice and salt and pepper to taste; cover and set aside while preparing chicken. (If making several hours or day ahead, refrigerate salsa.)

2. Prepare Grilled Chicken: In large bowl, combine white wine, apple juice, lime zest, salt, and pepper. Cut chicken breasts in half for a total of four pieces. Add chicken and turn to coat with mixture; cover and refrigerate 30 to 40 minutes.

3. Heat grill. Drain and discard chicken marinade. Grill chicken until cooked through; serve with salsa.

Tips:

Apples are an excellent way to add flavor and variety to many dishes. Apples are handy to keep in stock because they are versatile and keep fresh for a long time. They are also high in fiber and are a good source of antioxidants. Add steamed vegetables, one cup of brown rice, and a glass of low-fat milk to make this a complete meal.
