Summer is the perfect time for outdoor grilling and fresh, seasonal produce. One of the best ways to enjoy both is by making corn on the cob with BBQ chicken wraps. In this blog, we will provide a detailed recipe and instructions on how to make this mouth-watering meal.
To make corn on the cob with BBQ chicken wraps, you will need the following ingredients:
Fresh corn on the cob
Chicken breasts or thighs
Homemade or store-bought barbecue sauce
Salt and pepper
Corn on the Cob
Corn on the cob is a classic summer side dish that can be cooked in various ways, such as boiling or grilling. To make boiled corn on the cob, fill a large pot with water and bring it to a boil. Add the corn and cook for about 5-7 minutes, or until the corn is tender. Drain the water and season the corn with salt, pepper, and a drizzle of olive oil. Alternatively, you can grill the corn on the cob by removing the husks and silk, brushing the corn with olive oil, and grilling it over medium-high heat for 10-15 minutes or until lightly charred.
Barbecue Chicken Recipe
For the barbecue chicken recipe, you can use chicken breasts or thighs. Cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces and marinate them in your homemade or store-bought barbecue sauce for at least 30 minutes to infuse the flavors. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat or preheat your oven to 375°F. If grilling, skewer the chicken pieces and grill them for 5-7 minutes per side, basting with additional barbecue sauce as needed. If baking, place the chicken in a baking dish and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and lightly browned.
To assemble the wraps, start by heating the flour tortillas in the microwave or on the grill for a few seconds. Add a few leaves of lettuce on top of each tortilla, followed by a spoonful of grated cheese. Add the BBQ chicken pieces on top of the cheese and wrap the tortilla tightly, tucking in the sides to keep the filling in place. You can also add grilled onions or peppers for extra flavor.
Corn on the cob with BBQ chicken wraps can be served as a complete meal or as a side dish. You can serve it with a side salad or coleslaw for a complete meal, or as a side dish alongside other grilled meats or vegetables.To reheat, wrap the corn on the cob in foil and heat in the oven at 350°F for 10-15 minutes or until warmed through. You can reheat the wraps in the microwave for 30-60 seconds or on the grill for a few minutes.
Corn on the cob with BBQ chicken wraps is a versatile recipe that can be customized to your liking. Add other ingredients to the wraps, such as avocado, bacon, or sliced jalapenos. You can also use different types of cheese, such as cheddar or pepper jack. You can substitute the chicken with grilled tofu or tempeh if you prefer a vegetarian version. The possibilities are endless!
