Spiced and shredded chicken breast tossed with a chopped salad of charred corn, cos lettuce, tomato and cucumber in a creamy lime dressing.
1. Remove corn kernels from cobs and cook in a large heated frypan with 1/2 tbsp oil for 3-4 minutes, or until charred. Transfer to a large bowl, reserve pan.

2. Cut chicken into 4 strips (lengthways). Coat with 2 tsp paprika, 1 1/2 tsp cumin, 1 tbsp oil, salt and pepper. Cook in the reserved frypan over medium-high heat for 4-5 minutes on each side. Remove and shred using two forks.

3. Mix to combine sour cream, lime zest and juice, 1 tsp honey, 2 tbsp olive oil, crushed garlic and 1/2 tbsp vinegar. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

4. Trim and shred lettuce, dice tomatoes, cucumber (see notes) and capsicum. Toss all together with corn, dressing and shredded chicken.

5. Divide salad between plates and enjoy!

You can deseed the cucumber if you like, to prevent the salad and dressing from getting wet and diluted.

Serve any leftovers in a wrap for lunch the next day!
