2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Make the tomato salsa

  • Peel the shallots and thinly slice them crosswise. Separate the slices into rings. Set aside three-fourths of the shallots for the corn.
  • Cut the tomatoes in half.
  • Coarsely chop the cilantro.
In a medium bowl, add one-fourth of the shallots and season with salt, if desired, and pepper. Stir in the tomatoes, cilantro, and 1 to 2 teaspoons oil; season with salt, if desired, and pepper. Let stand while you prepare the rest of the meal.


Prep and cook the “creamed” corn

  • Shuck the corn. Lay the ear flat and cut the kernels from the cob.
In a small [medium] sauce pot over medium-high heat, warm 2 to 3 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the remaining shallots, season with salt, if desired, and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the shallots start to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the corn and cook until starting to soften, 1 to 2 minutes.
Add ½ cup [1 cup] water and season with salt, if desired, and pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the liquid has mostly evaporated and the corn is tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Remove from the heat; using a fork or the back of a spoon, gently mash about half the corn, then stir in the sherry vinegar. Transfer to a large bowl, stir in the kale, and season with salt, if desired, and pepper.
While the corn cooks, prepare the chicken.


Prep and cook the chicken

  • Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel; season with salt, if desired, and pepper and sprinkle with the paprika.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil until hot but not smoking. Add the chicken and cook, turning once, until lightly browned, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Reduce the heat to medium-low and continue cooking, turning occasionally, until firm and cooked through, 5 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board to cool slightly. Cut the chicken crosswise into ½-inch-thick slices.


Transfer the “creamed” corn and kale to individual plates and top with the chicken. Spoon the tomato salsa over the chicken and serve.
