Grilled Chicken and Corn makes a great lunch during a hot and sunny day. You can do this in your backyard or patio while enjoying the weather; you can even prepare this during a family picnic.
This recipe is simple and straightforward. Dry rub composed of salt, pepper, garlic powder, and paprika needs to be applied to the chicken. You will need to let it stay for at least 3 hours so that the chicken can absorb all those flavors (I would even recommend doing this for more than 3 hours to achieve better results). Once everything is in place, you can start grilling. Simple, isn’t it?
I usually brush softened butter to the chicken to give it a little moisture. If you are trying to avoid butter for weight loss reasons then you can always brush it with extra virgin olive oil or just leave it as it is – just make sure to rotate the chicken every now and then so that it won’t get burnt.
I liked the idea of pairing corn with grilled chicken. Since we already grilled the chicken, why not grill the corn, as well. Happy cooking!
