    Cooking Spray
    Salsa Salad:
    2 medium unpeeled red apples, such as Gala, finely chopped
    2 tablespoons finely chopped red onion
    2 tablespoons snipped fresh cilantro
    1 medium jalapeno, seeds and ribs discarded, finely chopped (optional)
    1/2 teaspoon grated orange zest
    2 tablespoons fresh orange juice (optional)
    1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

    Honey Glazed Chicken:
    1/3 cup barbeque sauce (lowest sodium available)
    3 tablespoons honey
    1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
    4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (about 4 oz each), all visable fat discarded


1. Preheat the broiler. Lightly spray a broiler pan and rack with cooking spray.
2. In a medium bowl, stir together the salsa salad ingredients. Set aside.
3. In a small bowl, stir together the barbecue sauce, honey, and cumin to use as the glaze. Pour 2 tablespoons mixture into another small bowl and set aside to use as the finishing sauce.
4. Broil the chicken about 4 inches from the heat for 3 minutes on each side. Turn the chicken over. Baste with part of the glaze. Broil for 6 minutes, turning over and basting with more glaze every 2 minutes, or until the chicken is no longer pink in the center and the sauce begins to brown. Transfer to four plates.
5. Spoon the 2 tablespoons reserved finishing sauce over the chicken. Serve with the salsa salad on the side.

Makes total of 4 servings.
