Salsa Marinated Chicken

Serves 4

1 1/2 cups good-quality prepared salsa 2 tablespoons no-salt-added tomato paste 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (about 1 pound total) 1 green bell pepper, cut into thin strips 2/3 cup frozen corn kernels, thawed 3 tablespoons finely chopped scallion 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro or parsley

Preheat the broiler or prepare the grill. In a shallow bowl, combine 1/2 cup of the salsa and the tomato paste and stir to blend. Add the chicken, turn to coat, and let stand while you prepare the vegetable salsa. In a medium bowl, combine the remaining 1 cup salsa, the bell pepper, corn scallion, lime juice, and cilantro. Broil or grill the chicken 4 inches from the heat for about 4 minutes per side, or until chicken is just cooked through. Place the chicken on 4 plates, spoon the vegetable salsa on the side and serve.
