Sizzling Summer recipe! Fresh and yummy! Plan ahead- Needs to marinate for at least 2 hours! Note: I have tried this with frozen corn rather than fresh and it was equally yummy. Canned corn will not give you as crisp a texture but is very good too. Source: National Chicken Council/U.S. Poultry & Egg Association
