This was a big hit with my fourteen-year-old daughter! I served it with Recipe #65768, Chicken Lazone, to celebrate Mardi Gras. I should have halved the recipe for my family of four, but we ate it all gone, so it's just as well. I used frozen corn and cooked it longer than the suggested ten minutes, which caused some loss of sweetness, so keep an eye on your timer!!
