Grilled Chicken Breasts with Grilled Corn and Tomato Salad
A simple corn and tomato salad adds a fresh summer taste to grilled chicken breasts.
Why This Recipe Works
We try to cook indoors as little as possible in the midsummer heat and are always looking for inventive dishes prepared on the grill. Chicken breasts cook in minutes, as does corn. A quick corn and tomato relish seems like the perfect match for juicy chicken. We tossed the chicken in a honey-mustard glaze before grilling to intensify its mild flavor, and parcooked the corn in the microwave to give it a jumpstart: corn cooked entirely on the grill can dry out. Then we cooked both the corn and the chicken quickly, over a hot fire: cooking the delicate white meat over a cooler fire will dry it out.
