  1. Grate the zest and squeeze the juice from the lemon, the lime and the orange.
  2. Stir the picante sauce, juices and zest in a medium bowl. Reserve 1 1/4 cups for the dressing. Pour the remaining picante sauce mixture into a shallow, nonmetallic dish or gallon size resealable plastic bag. Add the chicken and turn to coat. Cover the dish or seal the bag and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  3. Lightly oil the grill rack and heat the grill to medium-high. Grill the chicken for 15 minutes or until cooked through, turning and brushing often with the marinade. Remove the chicken to a cutting board. Let the chicken stand for 10 minutes. Chop the chicken. Discard the remaining marinade.
  4. Stir the honey and reserved picante sauce mixture in a large bowl. Add the chicken, cantaloupe, honeydew and pepper and toss to coat. Serve the chicken mixture on the lettuce leaves.

OMG! OMG! It was so scrumptious that the amount I'd made for me as leftover-lunch the next day was gone before the next day. Downsized it for three servings using 1/2 of a farm-fresh muskmelon and the one red pepper. Was leary about the tartness of the lemon, lime, and orange--but when mixed with the honey and glazed on the salad mixture, it was the perfect sweet 'n sour blend that got spicier the more you ate it (and we used a mild picante sauce!). Only thing I might do different next time is serve it with a side of Mexicali Corn (for color and texture).

I followed their recipe

Your outcome will depend upon the quality of the melon, so choose wisely or get professional help. My wife and I loved this dish.


I followed the recipe exactly as written. It turned out so YUMMY!! We had this a meal. Good the next day and had plenty of leftovers. I would definitely recommend this recipe to anyone looking for something a little different, but it's not TOO different. I used medium salsa and it gave it just the right kick. Nice healthy, light meal! Will make again for summer BBQs.
