Chicken with Spicy Pear Salsa

I love grilled chicken breasts with fruit salsa.  Here is my latest version...with pears!  The flavors sounded a little off to me, but they worked.  Lets be honest, I'll probably love anything that has cilantro in it :)
Chicken with Spicy Pear Salsa
1 firm but ripe Red Anjou Pear, peeled, cored and chopped
1/4 cup diced sweet onion
2 T. chopped fresh cilantro
1 clove garlic, minced
2 t. sliced jalapeno peppers, finely minced
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
3 T. extra virgin olive oil
Salt and Pepper
In a small bowl combine pear, onion, cilantro, garlic and jalapeno peppers.  Set aside.
Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper.
Over medium high heat, heat olive oil in large skillet. Place chicken breasts into pan and brown well on each side.  Cover pan and reduce heat to low.  Keep covered until chicken is cooked through.
Remove chicken from pan and place onto serving plates.
Heat pan over high heat, add salsa to the pan and quickly heat salsa while deglazing pan.
Pour salsa over chicken breast and serve.
