Updated Oct 24, 2016

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (1 1/4 lb)
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 bag (12 oz) frozen corn, thawed
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion

  • 1/2 jalapeño chile, finely chopped, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    Heat gas or charcoal grill. In small bowl, mix 1 1/2 teaspoons of the chili powder, the cumin, salt and garlic powder. Spray chicken with cooking spray; sprinkle seasoning mixture evenly over both sides of chicken. Set aside.
  • 2
    Spray sheet of heavy-duty foil with cooking spray; place corn in center of foil. Turn up edges of foil; place on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 10 minutes, stirring once, until corn begins to brown. Remove corn from grill to medium bowl; set aside.

    Place chicken on grill. Cover grill; cook 12 to 15 minutes, turning once, until juice of chicken is clear when center of thickest part is cut (at least 165°F). Remove chicken to plate; cover to keep warm. Add onion, tomatoes, bell pepper, cilantro, lime juice, chile and remaining 1/2 teaspoon chili powder to corn; toss to combine. Serve with chicken.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    The corn salsa would also be good served with tortilla chips.
  • tip 2
    Substitute 2 green onions, chopped, for the red onion and 1/3 cup jarred (drained) roasted red bell pepper for the green bell pepper.
