  • 4 or 5 sprigs organic fresh flat-leaf parsley

Chef's Tip

When zesting citrus, try to remove only the outermost colored portion of the rind, or zest, and as little of the white pith beneath as possible. The zest holds all the fragrant essential oils, while the pith tastes bitter.

Grill It

Prepare a medium-hot fire on one side of a grill. Set the chicken breasts on the grill directly over the heat and cook, turning once, until starting to brown, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer to indirect heat, skin side up, close the grill, and cook without turning until the skin is crisp and lightly charred and the meat is cooked through, about 10 minutes longer.

Wash produce before use

1

Make the salsa verde

  • Trim the root ends from the scallions; thinly slice the scallions.
  • Zest and juice the lemon, keeping the zest and juice separate. [Zest and juice 1 lemon; save the remaining lemon.]
  • Strip the parsley leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves.
In a small bowl, stir together the scallions, parsley, lemon zest, 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] lemon juice, and 3 to 4 tablespoons oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Measure out 2 tablespoons [¼ cup] salsa verde for the chicken. Set aside the remaining salsa verde for the white bean salad.

2

Prep and cook the chicken

  • Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel; season generously with salt and pepper. Coat the chicken on both sides with the 2 tablespoons [¼ cup] salsa verde.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Working in batches if needed, add the chicken, skin side down, and cook until the skin is well browned, 5 to 6 minutes. Turn and cook until the meat is firm and cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Add more oil between batches if needed. Wipe out the pan.
While the chicken cooks, start preparing the white bean salad.

3

Make the white bean salad

  • Shuck the corn. Lay the ear flat and cut the kernels from the cob.
  • Rinse the white beans.
  • Cut the tomatoes in half.
  • Strip the basil leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves.
In the same pan used for the chicken, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil over medium heat until hot but not smoking. Add the corn, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the white beans and cook until warmed through, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the tomatoes, basil, and remaining salsa verde. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
