Pineapple-Glazed Chicken w/ Jalapeño Salsa

This was SO good! The salsa alone was delicious, and pretty. I plan to do this (the salsa) again next time we have halibut. I found this recipe on epicurious. I applied some people's suggestions to my own dinner: I doubled the glaze and tripled the salsa. Also, marinated my chicken in 1 cup OJ concentrate, 1 cup soy sauce, and a few cloves of sliced garlic for about an hour.
*see nutritional facts at the bottom*

  • 1/4 cup pineapple juice
  • 2 tablespoons (packed) brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon yellow mustard
  • 3/4 cup 1/4-inch cubes fresh pineapple (I used canned. You need the juice anyway! And saves from cutting.)
  • 3 tablespoons finely diced red bell pepper
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons finely chopped red onion
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons canned sliced jalapeño chiles, drained, coarsely chopped (I prefer fresh. Cheaper too)
  • 4 boneless chicken breast halves with skin (1 3/4 pounds total)

  • Preheat oven to 400°F. 
  • Bring pineapple juice, brown sugar, and mustard to boil in small saucepan, stirring to dissolve sugar. Boil until glaze has thickened slightly, about 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper. 
  • Line baking sheet with foil. Place chicken on sheet and brush with glaze. Bake 15 minutes. Brush again with glaze, then broil until cooked through and golden, watching closely to avoid burning, about 5 minutes longer. Let rest 5 minutes. 
  • While chicken is cooking, mix pineapple, red pepper, cilantro, onion, and chiles in medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Spoon salsa over chicken and serve.
