Tangy Ranch Grilled Chicken & Corn on the Cob on the Grill




I just love taking a plain ordinary chicken breast and turning it into something awesome!  This ranch/mustard sauce rocked! 

It flavored the chicken nicely and made an awesome dip!  I love dip!

We also grilled corn on the cob. We do this at least once a week in the summer, it's the only way I cook corn on the cob. 

Soak corn in water in sink for about 20 minutes or so.  Keeping husks on.
Grill for 8 minutes, turn over and grill for another 8 minutes or so.  Cool and peel husks and enjoy!



We had one of the chicken breasts leftover and it made a super tasty salad the next day for lunch!

  2. This sounds like a great marinade...I think creamy dressings make great marinades...Grilling is the best way to cook corn on the cob.

  22. The chicken sounds great and I love grilled corn on the cob, make it that way as often as possible. Off season it's good roasted in the oven - smeared in butter, salt and pepper, wrapped in foil instead of husks. One way or the other I'll never boil corn again!

  23. That looks so yummy! We will be grilling corn for the first time ever tomorrow!

  24. What a nice simple, tasty meal, it looks great. Chicken breasts are so great for doctoring up. That's the only way I eat corn, on the cob and grilled. I tried it with some chipotle chili pepper powder, and it added a nice kick to it!
