  1. To make the relish, use either the fine side of a box grater or a citrus zester to remove the zest (the colored part of the skin only) from the lemon. Squeeze the juice; put zest and juice in small bowl. Stir in rest of relish ingredients. Set aside.
  2. Season chicken with the spices and salt. Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, chicken for 15 to 18 minutes, turning once, until no longer pink in center. Cook to internal temp of 165°F. Remove from pan.
  3. Add relish mixture to skillet; cook over medium-high heat for 1 to 2 minutes or until warm. Spoon over chicken.
