Baked Chicken Legs & Mexican Street Corn
These two items were successful pinterest finds! You can view them and other finds in my ideas.MealPlanning board. This was such an amazingly delicious and easy dinner! I also made a side salad to go with it but we ended up not even eating it cause the chicken and corn was so delicious!
You can get the Baked Chicken Legs recipe here & here is the Mexican Street Corn recipe.
The way I made it is a bit different than the way it was prepared on my pinterest link.
Mexican Street Corn recipe
4 large ears of corn (or a bag of frozen corn)
2 tbsp. butter
sea or kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 + 1/2 cups Queso Fresco, crumbled or Cotija or Parmesan cheese, grated
4 tablespoons fresh cilantro, minced
4 teaspoons chile powder
1 + 1/2 tbsp lime juice
garnish: 1 lime, cut into four wedges
Bring a pot of water to a boil. Then add the ears of corn and boil for 8 - 10 minutes.
Remove the ears from the water and shave the kernels off with a knife into a bowl. Then add the butter, salt and pepper, mayonnaise, sprinkle with cheese (I used Parmesan), cilantro, chile powder & lime juice. Mix together. Serve with lime wedges (if you feel fancy).
This is our new favorite side dish! It's a must try! Enjoy!
