Assembling the Dish
Braai the chicken (or grill on a griddle pan) over moderately hot coals for +- 4 minutes a side or until the chicken is cooked through.
Braai or grill the corn until it turns bright yellow and slightly charred. Slice the refrigerated butter into rounds and serve with the hot corn cobs.
Roughly shred the chicken into bite size pieces, serve on a bed of Asian slaw with corn and extra coriander and lime butter slices on the side. Serve with fresh lime wedges.
TIP: As an alternative, simply cut the corn off the cobs and assemble all ingredients inside a fresh wrap or pita.
