Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 4 4-oz boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 4 1-inch slices peeled pineapple
  • 1 mango, peeled, pitted and diced
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh mint
  • 1 tsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • Sea salt and ground black pepper, to taste
  • 12 radicchio leaves

Preparation

  1. Heat a small skillet on medium-high. Add coconut and toast for 2 to 3 minutes, until golden brown; set aside.
  2. Heat a large stove-top grill pan or griddle on medium-high and mist with cooking spray. Arrange chicken in half of pan and grill until cooked through and no longer pink inside, 5 to 6 minutes per side. Add pineapple alongside chicken and grill for 1 to 2 minutes per side, until golden brown. Set chicken and pineapple aside to cool; cut both into 1-inch chunks and transfer to a large bowl.
  3. To bowl, add mango, coconut, mint, oil, salt and pepper; mix well to combine. Divide radicchio leaves among plates and spoon chicken mixture into leaves, dividing evenly.
