Grilled Chicken With Corn Salsa

Marinated chicken and salsa are an excellent pairing, especially for a big cookout, because you can make the salsa ahead and set the chicken up to marinate at the same time. The flavor of both components will improve with a night in the fridge, and having the chicken ready to throw on the grill will make your party prep easy.

Ingredients

  • Chicken:

    • 6 chicken breasts
    • ¼ cup lemon juice
    • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
    • ¼ red onion, chopped
    • 1 Tbsp. lemon zest
    • 1 tsp. cumin

    Corn Salsa:

    • 1 cup corn
    • 1 large tomato, seeded and chopped
    • ⅔ cup chopped red onion
    • ½ cup chopped fresh cilantro
    • 2 tsp. olive oil
    • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
    • ½ tsp. cumin
    • 1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and minced

Directions

  1. Place chicken in glass baking dish. Combine all remaining chicken ingredients and pour over chicken. Turn to coat. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator (3-24 hours).
  2. Toss all salsa ingredients together. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  3. Heat grill to medium. Remove chicken from and discard marinade. Grill chicken until it reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165ºF (12-15 minutes).
  4. Serve chicken hot, topped with salsa.
