Spicy Margarita Chicken with Fire Roasted Corn and Grilled Pineapple Relish

Here’s a healthy summer grill item. I used skinless, free range organic chicken breasts (see the Code Delicious video, From Beak to Tail Feathers for details) and marinated in the spicy margarita marinade. This is also great for pork or flank steak for fajitas or such. The relish is very hearty and the beans add a satisfying element. The flavors of summer are all there; heat, sweet and meat! This is great with a cool white like a Sauvignon blanc that has citrus and/or pineapple flavors. Make the marinade, add the meats and marinate. Make the relish and let the flavors  dwell together while you grill then rest the meat of your choice. Oh, it goes great with one of Doc’s Flo-Ritas as well!
