Grilled chicken and corn mixed together with a tangy and spicy dressing makes an easy and flavorful weeknight supper. When purchasing the corn for this recipe, we selected corn that had tight green husks with golden brown tassels. You want to be sure to avoid husks that are brown and seem to be crackly. We suggest pulling the husks off the corn before grilling. It makes the process faster. If you don’t have fresh corn, you can use 1¾ cups thawed frozen corn kernels in this recipe.
