While the corn is grilling and between sips of your Boat Drink, place the chicken breasts on a platter or
hotel pan. Drizzle olive oil over the breasts and rub to coat. (Get your mind out of the gutter, we''re talking food here). Sprinkle a generous coating of the Cajun seasoning over the breasts. Now, whatever you thought was generous,
