 Barbecued Chicken Breasts
Sweet Corn on the Cob

Cooking time:  30 minutes for menu          Cooking schedule: see below for instructions

     Sweet corn is best fresh - so this meal requires a visit to the market or farm stand before dinner (or earlier in the day).  But, it's worth it. The proper way to fix sweet corn:  Bring a pot of water to a boil.  When boiling go to the garden and pick your sweet corn; RUN back, peeling on the way.....
We overindulge on the sweet corn so other food isn't needed.

Barbecued Chicken Breasts

Total time: 30 minutes
   A quick, savory marinade and a spicy barbecue sauce to finish makes these chicken breasts perfect for a quick summer dinner. Save a bit of barbecue sauce to pour over just before serving.
