Grilled BBQ Chicken with Sauteed Fresh Corn

This meal epitomizes summer to me.  Fast, simple, cooked outside, and healthy.   It helped that the kids were starving and worn out from a fun day, but they still ate every bite!

The Sauteed Fresh Corn with Basil is always a hit! And I made Pioneer Woman's marinated tomatoes (which were fantastic by the way), but I'll talk about those later.

BBQ Grilled Chicken

1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts, pounded thin (or buy the thin ones in the store to save time)
1 cup bottled BBQ sauce
salt and pepper

Salt and pepper chicken.  Heat grill to HOT, and grill chicken, brushing with BBQ sauce until it's done.  HEALTH NOTE: remember the brush has touched raw chicken, as has the BBQ sauce you dipped the brush in.  Throw away any extra sauce and don't use the brush to put sauce on the cooked chicken.  Always be careful not to cross contaminate!
