Parboil sweet potatoes
  • Quarter sweet potatoes lengthwise.
  • Add sweet potatoes, 1 tsp salt and enough water to cover (by approx. 1-2 inches) to a medium pot (use same for 4 ppl). Cover and bring to a boil over high heat.
  • When boiling, reduce heat to medium-high. Simmer uncovered until almost tender, 6-7 min.
  • Drain and set aside.
Prep and make lime aioli
  • Meanwhile, husk corn.
  • Peel, then mince or grate garlic.
  • Thinly slice green onion.
  • Zest, then juice half the lime (whole lime for 4 ppl). Cut any remaining lime into wedges.
  • Cut tomato into 1-inch pieces.
  • Pat chicken dry with paper towels.
  • Add mayo, lime zest, garlic, 1/2 tsp (1 tsp) lime juice and a pinch (2 pinches) of sugar to a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper, then stir to combine.
Prep chicken and grill ingredients
  • Add chicken, 2 1/2 tsp (5 tsp) Mexican Seasoning and 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) oil to a medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper, then toss to coat.
  • Add corn to one side of the grill. Add chicken to the other side of the grill.
  • Close lid and grill, turning corn occasionally, until tender and grill marks form, 12-14 min.
  • Grill chicken, flipping once, until cooked through, 5-6 min per side.**
  • Transfer corn and chicken to a parchment-lined baking sheet.
Grill sweet potatoes
  • Meanwhile, add sweet potatoes to another parchment-lined baking sheet. Drizzle 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) oil over potatoes, then season with salt and pepper.
  • Grill potatoes next to corn, flipping halfway through, until tender, 3-4 min per side.
  • Transfer potatoes to the same baking sheet with corn and chicken.
Finish salad
  • Add tomatoes, feta, remaining Mexican Seasoning and 1 1/2 tbsp (3 tbsp) lime aioli to a medium bowl.
  • When corn is cool enough to handle, with corn on its side, cut kernels from cob, turning cob as you go.
  • Add corn to the bowl with tomatoes. Season with salt and pepper, then toss to combine.
Finish and serve
  • Thinly slice chicken.
  • Divide chicken, salad and sweet potato wedges between plates.
  • Sprinkle green onions over plate.
  • Serve remaining lime aioli alongside for dipping.
  • Squeeze a lime wedge over top, if desired.
