Remove chicken from marinade, discarding marinade; drain pineapple mixture. Coat chicken and pineapple mixture with vegetable cooking spray.

Grill chicken, covered with grill lid, over medium-high heat (350° to 400°) 5 to 6 minutes on each side or until done. Grill pineapple and jicama 2 to 3 minutes on each side.

Cut chicken and jicama into thin strips; cut pineapple into bite-size pieces. Combine chicken, jicama, pineapple, strawberry halves, and raspberries; toss gently with Orange-Raspberry Vinaigrette. Serve over lettuce leaves.
