Grilled Chicken and Corn with Charred Scallion-Lime Butter
Fire up the grill and make a complete meal with this recipe for grilled chicken thighs and corn on the cob with a smoky and tangy herb butter for spreading. The Charred Scallion-Lime Butter, which also contains chives and parsley, is made in a food processor and can be prepared a day in advance. (You will need some of it to brush on the chicken before it is grilled.) This dish comes together quickly once the food hits the grill, although you do need to set aside 30 minutes for the corn husks to soak in water. This adds moisture to the husks, which will reduce the chance of flare-ups on the grill. To get good grill marks, shake any excess water off the corn after it has been soaked. Serve the chicken and corn alongside the Charred Scallion-Lime Butter with lime wedges and plenty of cold beer or iced tea for an almost effortless summertime meal.
