Makes 4 servings      Serving size:1 chicken breast half & 1 cup salsa

1             tablespoon chopped fresh oregano
1             tablespoon extravirgin olive oil
1             teaspoon chili powder
3/4          teaspoon ground cumin
1/2          teaspoon salt
3             garlic cloves, minced
4            (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves 
                             **Cooking spray** 
2             cups (1/2-inch) cubed seeded watermelon 
1             cup (1/2-inch) cubed peeled ripe mango 
1/4          cup finely chopped red onion 
2             tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
2             tablespoons finely chopped seeded jalapeño pepper (about 1 small)
1              tablespoon fresh lime juice 
1/2           teaspoon sugar 
1/4           teaspoon salt

1 .      Combine first 6 ingredients in a large zip-top plastic bag. Add chicken to bag; seal. Marinate in refrigerator up to 4 hours, turning bag occasionally.
                          **Prepare grill**
2 .      Place chicken on a grill rack coated with cooking spray. Grill 5 minutes on each side or until done. Combine watermelon and remaining ingredients. Serve watermelon mixture with chicken.

**Sweet watermelon perfectly complements the earthy spices—oregano, chili powder, and cumin— used to marinate juicy chicken breasts.
