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) 

1 bunch Swiss chard, chopped (stems and leaves separated)

2 tablespoons unsalted butter

3 scallions, sliced


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
