4 medium boneless chicken, skinless chicken breast halves (12 ounces total)

orange juice
1/4 cup chutney, snipped
1 tbsp salad oil or cooking oil
1 tsp cornstarch
1/4 tsp curry powder
dash pepper
4 cups torn romaine or spinach
1 medium apple or pear, cored and coarsely chopped
1 cup cubed honeydew melon or cantaloupe, or peeled peach slices
1/4 cup coarsely chopped pecans or walnuts
1 tbsp cooking oil
*Rinse chicken; pat dry. Cut chicken into bite-size pieces. Set aside.
*Peel the oranges. Then section oranges over a bowl to catch the juice. Add enough additional orange juice to make 1/4 cup. Set orange sections aside. For sauce, in a medium bowl stir together the orange juice, chutney, salad oil or cooking oil, cornstarch, curry powder, and pepper. Set aside.

*In a salad bowl, toss together the orange sections, romaine or spinach, apple or pear, melon or peaches and pecans or walnuts. Set aside.
*Pour the 1 tbsp cooking oil into a wok or large skillet. Preheat over medium-high heat. Add the chicken to the hot wok. Stir-fry for 2-3 minutes or till no pink remains. Push the chicken from the center of the wok.
*Stir sauce. Add the sauce to the center of the wok. Cook and stir till thickened and bubbly. Stir ingredients together to coat the chicken with sauce. Cook and stir about 1 minute more. Pour the chicken and sauce mixture over the romaine and fruit mixture. Toss to coat. Serve immediately. Makes 4 servings.
