I started out by putting 5 chicken thighs in my marinade (recipe to follow) leaving them to marinate for 2 hours. (Note: I am cooking for 4 people) Next, I turn my boiler on low. I used a baking pan and lined it with foil and put a little grilling rack inside it to cook the chicken. Once the oven was heated to full temp., I put my chicken in the oven for approx. 10-12 minutes on each side, maybe less. Chicken thighs are pretty small and cook much quicker than breasts.
Marinade: 1 1/2 cup of extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup of Red Wine Vinegar
3/4 cup of soy sauce
1/3 cup lemon juice
1 tsp salt
1 tablespoon pepper
2 tsp dried parsley
1 tsp garlic powder
Corn on the cob:
My father in law gave us some unbelievable corn from his garden. I shucked and rinsed them and put them into boiling water for about 3-4 minutes. Not too long. Just enough to be pipin' hot~!!! And of course rolled them in some Humboldt Creamery Butter. http://www.humboldtcreamery.com/

This was a salad kit from Costco but is super easy to make on your own too.
