The juiciest chicken on the grill starts with chicken on the bone... I always cook 6 thighs for two of us, so there are leftovers!

CORN????!!! Yep, there are few things in life as wonderful as fresh summer corn. A few bites of an ear of corn was not reason for morbid obesity. Do not slather on mayonnaise and or butter and its fine. Psssst, its a VEGETABLE. Would I nibble a cooked from frozen cob or from a can, nope, but tender summer corn is worth it.
