Why is corn on the cob one of the greatest gifts to taste buds everywhere? And so easy to prepare… just boil for 5-7 minutes. Umm… Yum!
My side with work into it was the meddle of roasted vegetables. I like to precook the taters by boiling for a minute and the brussel sprouts were briefly pan fried with the onions to get them nice and crisp. I roasted them at 400 degrees for about 35 minutes with olive oil, salt, pepper, and the always reliable fresh rosemary.
As usual, I sliced the chicken down the middle (butterflied) to get a more even surface to cook and not overcook the outside. This was grillin’ time with the weather being beautiful. I hit the chicken with cayenne pepper, salt, fresh ground pepper, olive oil, balsamic, and a little bit of store bought BBQ sauce. The chicken turned out super juicy, partially thanks to the grill being low on gas, so I had to cook it for longer than I would have if I’d had serious heat to work with.
This was quite easy and delicious for a lazy meal. Cutting up all the vegetables was the only thing that really took any time at all. What a way to celebrate Spring, Corn on the cob and grilled chicken.
