Pan-Seared Chicken with Clementine Salsa
by Meghan Pembleton
Special for The Arizona Republic
2 clementines or 1 navel orange
1 medium tomato
1/4 cup chopped red onion
1 handful fresh cilantro
2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 12 ounces each)
1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper
1/2 tablespoon olive oil
Peel and chop clementines; place in a small bowl. Chop tomato and add to bowl, along with onion. Discard cilantro stems; coarsely chop leaves and add to bowl. Toss well and let set at room temperature. With a sharp knife, carefully cut each chicken breast in half through its middle (thickness-wise) to get four thin cutlets. Season with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook chicken 4 minutes per side. Let rest 5 minutes before slicing and serving with the salsa.
