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

This was very tasty, and beautiful too. I used canned corn, so I cut back on the salt added, but otherwise followed the directions pretty exactly. Next time I'll cut back on the red onion as we found it a bit strong. Made for ZWT5.

Delicious, easy, healthy, and love the colors representing the Mexican flag! We love bell peppers so this really went over super well. I subbed cilantro for the parsley, used about 1/4 teaspoon pepper and 2 tablespoons of onion Served it with a rice concoction and Strawberry Flan - Flan De Fresas for a very nice meal. Gracias mama's kitchen para compartir. Made for Chow Hounds during ZWT5.

*Reviewed during ZWT5* wonderful! My husband and daughters adored this chicken dinner. Loved the fresh relish/salad. Reviewed during ZWT Aussie/NZ visit. Used red, green and yellow capsicums. We love red wine vinegar and it was the perfect addition to the relish. We will definitely be having this again. A quick and easy BBQ meal or could easily be pan-cooked chicken. Yum!. Thankyou for a wonderful meal. Served with KristinV's Once-A-Year Potato Bake
