The lemon marinade was outstanding. The grilled chicken rates a 5, the arugula with the lemon dressing rates a 5, but the corn cakes rate a 3. Next time I'm chopping the bacon and adding it to the corn cakes with a cup of shredded sharp cheddar and a bit of onion. I'm not going to layer the 3 like the recipe says. It's too difficult to eat. I'll serve it as 3 separate items.

I liked the corn cakes, but I did not love them. My kids would not eat them at all... even my daughter who loves corn. I think they could be better, maybe put the bacon inside the cakes, and maybe a small amount of cheese so they don't dry out. I may attempt again b/c I have another pouch of corn bread mix, but this will not stay in my recipe box as a regular.

I thought this dish was amazing. I used the suggestions from others and added the bacon into the corn cakes as well as sharp chedder cheese. Delicious! I love the lemon marinade and will make this again!

This recipe is so good! I had never had corn cakes before but I'm completely in love with them. I would add cheese and bacon in the corn cakes, it makes them ten times better.

I made this for a birthday dinner... rave reviews from my critics! The chicken was delicious( followed the recipe). For the corn cakes, I used Jiffy cornbread mix, added the grilled corn,chopped bacon and I sautéed some red onion in the bacon drippings(I know unhealthy but good). The corn cakes were a HUGE success! I was thinking of adding some crème fraiche next time, just for some added flavor.This is a delicious combination of summer favors.

This was really good, though next time I'm definitely reducing the amount of salt and olive oil in the lemon marinade. I too crumbled the bacon in the batter and added some low fat cheddar cheese to it. I wound up using a box of Jiffy corn bread and added buttermilk and egg and some drippings from the bacon. Very good, my family loved it!
