  • 1 lb chicken breast, thinly sliced
  • 3.5 oz can chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
  • 2 cups corn kernels (270 grams)
  • 1/2 cup red onion, sliced (57 grams)
  • 1/2 medium red bell pepper, diced (58 grams)
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and diced (15 grams)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced (8 grams)
  • 3/4 cup water (6 oz)
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp sugar (25 grams)
  • 1 tsp salt (6 grams)
  • 1/2 tsp Flavor God Garlic Lovers Seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  1. Add chicken breast and chipotles in adobo to a resealable container and massage until the chicken is coated in the sauce. Marinate for at least one hour, but preferably overnight.

  2. Add corn, red onion, bell pepper, jalapeno, and garlic to a bowl. Set aside.

  3. Bring water almost to a boil, then add sugar and salt and stir until dissolved. Add apple cider vinegar, Flavor God Garlic Lovers Seasoning, and black pepper and stir.

  4. Pour pickling liquid over corn mixture and mix, then push the corn mixture under the liquid as much as possible. Cover and marinate for at least 1 hour.

  5. Before serving corn relish, drain most of the pickling liquid out and stir in cilantro.

  6. Grill chicken, slice, and serve with corn relish and other sides, as desired.

Recipe Notes

The corn relish recipe makes about twice what you see on top of the chicken in the pictures here, so you could easily stretch it to 6 or more servings instead of the 4 servings listed here.  The nutrition info is for the entire corn relish recipe to be eaten in 4 servings.
