    Default Caribbean Chicken and Pineapple Salsa

    Thirty minutes to dinner! Dijon and jerk seasoning jazz up baked chicken breasts while bran cereal adds crunch. A peppy fruit salsa makes a sassy topper.

    Prep Time: 15 min
    Total Time: 30 min
    Makes: 4 servings

    1 1/4 cups Fiber One® original bran cereal
    2 teaspoons jerk seasoning (dry)
    4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 1 1/4 lb)
    1/2 cup buttermilk
    2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
    1/2 teaspoon red pepper sauce

    Pineapple Salsa:
    1 can (8 oz) crushed pineapple in juice, undrained
    1/4 cup chopped red bell pepper
    1/4 cup chopped apricots or papaya, if desired
    1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
    1 teaspoon sugar
    1 teaspoon lemon juice

    1. Heat oven to 400°F. Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray. Place cereal in resealable food-storage plastic bag; seal bag and finely crush with rolling pin or meat mallet (or crush in food processor). Place cereal in shallow dish. Stir in jerk seasoning.
    2. In large food-storage plastic bag, place chicken, buttermilk, mustard and pepper sauce. Seal bag; shake well. Remove chicken from bag; coat with cereal mixture. Place on cookie sheet.
    3. Bake 14 to 16 minutes or until juice of chicken is clear when center of thickest part is cut (170°F). Meanwhile, in small bowl, mix salsa ingredients. Cover; refrigerate until serving. Serve chicken with salsa.

    High Altitude (3500-6500 ft): Bake 17 to 19 minutes.

    Time-Saver: Purchase a pineapple salsa at your supermarket, or experiment with other purchased salsa flavors.

    Serve-With: Steamed asparagus or broccoli makes a delicious and healthful side for this chicken dish.
