Looking for a fresh, flavorful Passover recipe that can be ready in less than half an hour? Our seasoned chicken with homemade grape-tomato salsa will hit the spot. You may enjoy it so much that you'll find that you're making it year-round. We wouldn't blame you. As well as the tomatoes, the salsa features a seeded jalapeño, chopped red onions, white wine vinegar, and fresh mint. Not only does it complement this chicken, it goes with tortilla or pita chips for dipping as a quick snack (you may need to give the tomatoes a finer chop, though). For a fruity variation on this savory salsa, substitute 2 cups of sliced fresh strawberries for the tomatoes. Just be sure the strawberries are very juicy and sweet.


Grape tomatoes

2 cup(s), halved (opt for small tomatoes)

Jalapeño pepper(s)

1 small, cored, seeded and minced (do not touch seeds with bare hands)

Uncooked red onion(s)

½ cup(s), sliced, finely chopped

White wine vinegar

1 Tbsp

Table salt

1¼ tsp, or to taste, divided

Black pepper

1¼ tsp, freshly ground, or to taste, divided

Peppermint leaves

1 Tbsp, fresh, chopped

Cooking spray

1 spray(s), lemon-flavor recommended

Uncooked boneless skinless chicken breast(s)

1 pound(s), thinly sliced


½ medium, cut into 4 wedges


  1. To prepare salsa, in a small bowl, combine tomatoes, jalapeno, onion, vinegar and 1/4 teaspoon each of salt and pepper; sprinkle on mint and set aside.
  2. Coat a large heavy-bottomed ridged grill pan with cooking spray; heat over medium-high heat for 1 minute.
  3. Sprinkle chicken with remaining teaspoon each of salt and pepper; place in a single layer on prepared pan. Cook until chicken turns white around edges, about 1 to 2 minutes; flip chicken and grill until chicken is cooked through, about 1 to 2 minutes more.
  4. Arrange chicken in overlapping slices on a serving plate; spoon on salsa and garnish with lemon wedges. Yields about 3 ounces of chicken and 1/2 cup of salsa per serving.
