NUTRITION INFO
Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts (about 1 1/2 pounds)
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2 slices thick-cut bacon, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 4 ears of corn, kernels cut off (about 2 cups)
  • 1 bunch Swiss chard, chopped (stems and leaves separated)
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 scallions, sliced
Directions

Preheat a grill to medium and lightly brush the grill grates with olive oil. Whisk the vinegar, olive oil, ketchup and mustard in a small bowl. Season the chicken with salt and pepper and brush all over with the vinegar mixture. Grill until marked and cooked through, 8 to 9 minutes per side; transfer to a plate.

Meanwhile, heat a cast-iron skillet or Dutch oven over medium-high heat on the stove or place directly on the grill grates. Add the bacon and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned and crisp, about 5 minutes.

Add the corn kernels and Swiss chard stems to the skillet. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the corn is tender and lightly browned, about 3 minutes. Add the butter, scallions and chard leaves. Cook until the chard is just wilted, about 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Slice the chicken and serve with the corn mixture.
