Jennifer Segal's Creamy Grilled Chicken Salad with Corn on the Cob & Lime-Basil Butter
As a formally-trained trained chef who left the restaurant industry when her son was born, Jenn Segal combines her professional kitchen know-how with the practicality of a busy working mom. All parts of this recipe are adapted from her new, first-ever cookbook, Once Upon a Chef, which bears the same name as her online blog. The cool and creamy chicken salad is inspired by her memories of hosting lunch for “Mommy and Me” groups, however, instead of opting for the easy local gourmet market takeout option, she recreates it as a homemade version that’s just as delicious and refreshing, without the trek through traffic or the cashier line. Jenn also gives the summer favorite, corn on the cob, an upgrade—grilling in-husk, and then brushing with a bright and citrusy herb butter to brings out their natural sweetness. The composed dish tastes just like summer, and is a tried-and-true recipe bound to satisfy bellies of all ages.
