- 1 lb chicken breasts
- 1 jalapeno pepper with seeds removed, thinly sliced
- 1/3 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
- 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
- 2 tsp reduced salt soy sauce
Mixed salad greens
- 1 melon salsa

Sprinkle chicken with pepper and finely chopped jalapeno. Stir in 2 tbsp lime juice, garlic, soy sauce. Turn chicken to marinate in sauce at room temperature for 15 minutes.
To make salsa, halve the cucumbers lengthwise. Remove seeds with the tip of a spoon and drag it the length of the cucumber piece; slice cucumber 1/4 inch thick.
Toss cucumber, cantaloupe, tomatoes, basil and jalapeno with lime juice in a medium bowl. Set aside.
Preheat broiler or barbecue and coat with non-stick vegetable spray. Discard marinade from chicken.
Cook chicken until juices run clear, about 5 minutes on each side, turning only once.
Move chicken to cutting board and cut breasts in diagonal strips about 1/4 in thick. Toss with melon salsa.
Divide salad greens on 4 plates and spoon chicken and melon mixture on top of each.
