Ingredients

FOR THE CHICKEN:

  • 2 boneless, skinless, chicken breasts
  • 12 T Olive oil
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Zest and juice of 1/2 lime

FOR THE SALSA:

  • 2 ears of corn, husks removed
  • 12 T Olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 c red onion, sliced thinly into half rounds
  • 1/2 jalepeno, seeds removed, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 red bell pepper, diced
  • Juice of 1 1/2 limes
  • Cilantro, as garnish
  • Salt and Pepper
  • A few handfuls of fresh arugula, for serving
  • 1 Avocado, for serving, optional 

Instructions

  1. Add red onion to bowl with lime juice and set aside. 
  2. Season chicken breasts generously with salt and pepper followed by remaining spices and lime juice. Set aside and let marinate for 10-15 minutes.
  3. Preheat grill, indoor grill pan or cast iron skillet over medium high heat.
  4. Meanwhile, rub each ear of corn generously with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. When the grill pan is hot, add corn and cook until charred on all sides, about 4 minutes per side. Set aside.
