Recipe

The watermelon around here has been amazing lately and super affordable, which is always a nice bonus. Almost daily I have been throwing it into the blender along with some fresh mint or basil for a refreshing afternoon treat. I have also been adding it to just about every salad I make. This simple salad with spiced chicken and smoky charred corn pairs perfectly with the sweet watermelon and makes a great end of summer meal. In terms of dressing, I love it with this simple homemade balsamic glaze but you could add any dressing you like. I also wouldn’t judge if you decided to add some nice crumbled feta, goat cheese, or fresh mozzarella.

Directions

  1. Bring the balsamic vinegar to a simmer on the stove and let reduce for 15-20 minutes until it is nice and thick. This will serve as the dressing.
  2. Meanwhile combine the paprika, cumin, chile powder, salt, pepper, and cinnamon. Rub onto the chicken on both sides.
  3. Heat a skillet over medium high heat. Add the oil. Once hot, add the chicken and cook for 4-5 minutes on each side until seared and cooked through. Set aside.
  4. Add the corn to the same skillet in one layer. Let cook for about 1 minute until beginning to brown and toss. Cook for another 1-2 minutes until browned and just tender.
  5. Toss together all the remaining ingredients. Top with corn, chicken, and balsamic glaze.
