Honey Grilled Chicken with Pear SalsaMonday, October 07, 2013
From our skinny table to yours ...
We love to cook with fresh, local, in-season produce! Shopping in-season ensures we are eating the very best ingredients available and it keeps us from getting in a food rut because we are always switching up the ingredients, textures and flavors.
This time of year it is all about apples, pumpkins, squash and pears. Tonight we are cooking up our honey grilled chicken topped with fresh pear salsa. The pears looked so delicious we kept this one raw & really simple! Just chop up your pears, red onion & jalapeno and season with lime juice & fresh cilantro. This would be delicious served up as is on game day for a healthy twist on the typical salsa but tonight we are using it as a topping for our honey chicken.
