FOR FRESH LEMON AND CUCUMBER TOPPING:

COMBINE
cucumber, onion, cilantro, lemon juice, lemon peel and salt in small bowl; stir to blend well. Set aside.



FOR TEA-RUBBED CHICKEN:

COMBINE
Nestea, cumin and sugar in small bowl; stir well. Sprinkle evenly over both sides of chicken. Press down gently with fingertips to make sure rub sticks to chicken.



HEAT medium, nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Add oil; tilt skillet to coat bottom evenly. Add chicken; cook for 5 to 6 minutes on each side or until chicken is no longer pink in center.



PLACE chicken on 4 individual dinner plates; top with equal amounts of topping.



*Cook's Tip: Be sure to rinse and pat the chicken dry before adding the rub to make sure it browns rather than "simmers."
