BBQ TIP: Instead of pan-frying, grill corn cobs on medium heat, turning occasionally, until corn kernels are dark golden-brown, 10-12 min.

Wash and dry all produce.* Cut the tomatoes in half. Mince or grate the garlic. Roughly chop the cilantro. Zest, then juice the lime(s). Halve, pit and cut the avocado(s) into ½-inch cubes. Peel the husk off the corn. Pat the chicken dry with paper towels, then cut each breast into 1/2-inch slices.
