Island Chicken with Fruit Salsa

2 (16 ounce) cans small diced pineapple, reserve juice of 1 can
2 mangos or papayas, diced
2 green serrano chile peppers, cored, seeded and diced
1/3 cup roughly chopped cilantro
1/2 cup fresh lime juice and pulp
1/2 cup fresh orange juice
1/4 cup either dark rum or tequila
1/2 small clove garlic, minced
8 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, flattened

For Marinade/Salsa: Combine the pineapple, pineapple juice, mangos/papayas, peppers, cilantro, lime juice and pulp, orange juice, rum/tequila and garlic. Let stand for one hour before adding chicken.

Reserve enough salsa (sans juice) for topping. Marinate the chicken breast halves in the marinade/salsa mixture for 2 to 6 hours.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C) and bake chicken for 30 minutes (or, for best results, grill).
