Grapefruit Jalapeno Salsa:


  1. Section the grapefruit by cutting off the round top and bottom of the peel. Working around the grapefruit, remove peel from the sides, getting any visible pith. Then, use your knife to cut between one membrane and a segment, pushing outward to free the segment from the membrane on the other side. Continue, working your way around the grapefruit until you have no more white.
  2. Finely chop half of the grapefruit segments and add to a gallon-sized zip top bag with worcestershire, salt, pepper, and paprika. Place chicken breasts in the bag and let marinate for at least 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare the salsa. Roughly chop the other half of the grapefruit segments and add to a bowl with diced jalapeno, onion, cilantro, and avocado. Add a pinch of salt and gently stir to combine. Place in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
  4. Heat a grill pan or grill to medium heat. Spray with oil and add chicken breasts. Cook, flipping once halfway through, until chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165° F and juices run clear, about 10 minutes per side, more or less depending on the thickness.
  5. Remove chicken breasts from pan or grill once they are done cooking and top with grapefruit salsa. Serve immediately.
