Roasted Chicken Breast with Kiwi Salsa



10 ZESPRI® Green Kiwifruit, peeled and diced

1/2 cup green onions, sliced

2 navel oranges, supremed

1 bunch cilantro, chopped

1 red pepper, medium diced

2 tomatoes, peeled and seeded

1 Jalapeno pepper, seeds removed and diced

2 tbsp brown rice vinegar

1 tsp kosher salt

1 tsp cracked black pepper



4 chicken breasts, skin on

1 tsp each kosher salt and cracked black pepper

2 tbsp olive oil




1. Combine all the ingredients. Remove 1/4 of the mixture and puree it, briefly, in a food processor. Add the pureed part back into the salsa.

2. Refrigerate for at least one hour before serving.



1. Preheat the oven to 450°F.

2. Bring a deep skillet to heat on high, and then add the olive oil. When the oil is hot, place the chicken, skin side down, into the skillet. Sear the chicken until the skin has browned (2 to 3 minutes). Turn the chicken breasts over and immediately place the skillet into the hot oven.

3. Cook the chicken until the internal temperature has reached 155°F.

4. Serve the chicken with a generous spoonful of the kiwi salsa strewn across the top of it.
