Don't forget to preheat your grill 10-30 min prior to cooking depending on type of grill: or if cooking in oven 400 degrees:
I like to marinate my chicken for at least 2 hrs...the longer the better. Overnight would be delish!
To make the BBQ marinade:
I like to make too much sauce rather than not enough. Whatever I don't use I store in the fridge for later use.
Combine in a mid-size mixing bowl the BBQ sauce, I love Sweet Baby Rays sweet & spicy BBQ sauce, the honey, apple sauce, butter, cayenne, salt & pepper. Mix until well blended. This sauce is also great to marinate wings & thighs in. Yum! Works great on the grill or in the oven
Tenderize the chicken breasts & season with salt & pepper.
Place chicken in glass baking dish & pour sauce over chicken. Always reserve some to use during the cooking process.
Turn chicken breasts over in sauce & coat thoroughly.
Cover with plastic & marinate in the fridge.
Prep your salad:
Combine all ingredients listed under summer salad except the dressing in a large bowl. Cover with plastic & place in fridge until ready to serve. Toss in dressing right before serving.
Corn on the Cob:
Place large pot of salted & sugared water on the stove & set to high to boil.
Husk corn right before cooking for the best flavor.
I usually boil mine but some times grill it for something a little different. I also season my water with salt & sugar. 1-2 tablespoons of each. Once the water is boiling place the corn in & boil uncovered 12 minutes.
Pour into colander & serve with yummy salt & butter. You can even melt butter down & pour it into little Dixie cups or whatever for people to pour over their corn.
When your grill is nice & hot...preheat at least 10 min for gas & electric & 30 min for charcoal...place chicken on grill & cook 4-6 min per side (only flip once!) for chicken breast halves & 6-8 min per side for whole or larger chicken breasts. When you flip the chicken baste the flipped side in some of the reserved sauce.
Always take your chicken's temperature, trust me, investing in a meat thermometer is worth it, chicken should be between 170-175 degrees to be delicious & juicy.
If cooking chicken in the oven, cook at 400 degrees for 20-40 min depending on the thickness of chicken. I usually tent my chicken in aluminum foil to keep it moist the last 5-10 min of its cooking time.
So! Now that your chicken & corn is done, take out your salad, toss in the dressing & enjoy!
