          • DIRECTIONS

            • Preheat grill to 400˚F.
            • If your chicken breasts are thick, butterfly them and add to a gallon-sized zip-top bag. Gently pound chicken using the soft side of a mallet. You will want chicken to be about ¼-inch thick.
            • Add chicken, olive oil, lime juice, lime zest, garlic, chopped cilantro, salt and pepper to a gallon-sized zip-top bag.
            • Zip the bag closed and massage the chicken making sure it is evenly coated in the marinade.
            • Allow chicken to marinate for 20-25 minutes before grilling.
            • Dice grilled pineapple into small, evenly sized cubes.
            • Add pineapple, jalapeno, shallots, red pepper, grilled corn, lime juice and salt to mixing bowl and stir gently until well combined. Set aside.
            • Carefully place a sheet of foil on the heated grill and place chicken on foil. Grill for about 3 minutes on each side.
            • Remove from grill and arrange chicken on a platter. Top with pineapple jalapeno salsa and garnish with crushed peanuts and sliced green onions.
            • Serve over mixed greens or with grilled vegetables on the side.
