Grilled Citrus Chicken with Chili Rubbed Corn
- 1 1/4 pound(s) uncooked boneless skinless chicken breast(s)
- 1/2 tsp tangerine juice, canned or fresh
- 2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice, about half a lemon
- 1 Tbsp fresh lime juice, about 1 lime
- 2 clove(s), medium garlic clove(s), minced
- 1/2 tsp table salt
- 1/4 tsp black pepper, freshly ground
- 4 medium yellow corn on the cob, in husk
- 1 Tbsp olive oil
- 1 tsp salted butter
- 1 Tbsp chili powder, ancho-variety
- 1/4 tsp table salt
- 1 spray(s) cooking spray
- 8 medium uncooked scallion(s), thick-variety
- Slice chicken into 4 or 8 pieces. In a large bowl, mix together tangerine, lemon and lime juices, garlic, 1/2 teaspoon of salt and pepper; add chicken and marinate for a minimum of 10 minutes or up to overnight in refrigerator.
- In a large pot filled with cold water, add unshucked ears of corn; soak for 10 minutes.
- In a small microwavable bowl, combine oil, butter, chili powder and remaining 1/4 teaspoon of salt; microwave for about 15 seconds and stir to combine (or melt in a saucepan if you do not have a microwave). Remove corn from pot, pull back husk (be careful to leave husk attached to corn) and remove as much of silk as possible. Brush each piece of corn with about 1/2 teaspoon of oil mixture; cover corn with husk again.
- Heat a grill to medium-high heat (or use an indoor grill pan). Grill corn, turning every few minutes, until husks are blackened and charred, about 15 to 17 minutes.
- Off heat, coat grill rack with cooking spray. After corn cooks for about 8 minutes, add chicken and grill, flipping once, until chicken is cooked through, about 2 to 4 minutes per side.
- After flipping chcken, place scallions in any remaining oil mixture from corn and toss to coat. Grill scallions in a grill saute pan or basket, using tongs to flip them occasionally, until soft and beginning to blacken in spots, about 2 to 4 minutes. Yields about 4 ounces of chicken, 1 ear of corn and 2 scallions per serving.
If your grill pan is not large enough to accomodate all the food at once, cook the corn first, then the chicken and then the scallions; cover each to keep warm.
