  • 2 corn cobs
  • 4 Little Gem lettuces, quartered lengthways

  1. Cut the chicken breasts in half lengthways so you are left with 8 chicken strips. Mix the garlic, paprika, lemon juice and 1 tbsp oil with some seasoning and toss with the chicken. Leave to marinate for at least 15 mins.

  2. Heat a griddle pan and brush with half the remaining oil and cook the chicken for 3-4 mins each side until cooked through. Brush over the remaining oil and griddle the corn cobs, turning to cook evenly, for about 5 mins or until lightly charred. Remove and cut off the kernels.

  3. Mix the lettuce and cucumber, top with the corn and chicken, and drizzle over your choice of dressing.

I made this with the honey-lime dressing from another page which is lush. The flavour of the chicken is really good I think it were marinated for 12 hours first it would be amazing. It was very nice but not really memorable.

This is lovely and quick but really does need the griddle pan for the flavour. I have cooked the chicken under a grill and boiled the corn but it's just not the same.
