Grill chicken, fresh corn and peaches at the same time and baste in a mixture of honey and hot chili sauce for a dish that is the definition of summertime cooking.
2 tablespoons honey
1 (1-inch) piece peeled fresh ginger, grated
1/3 cup Sriracha (hot chile sauce, such as Huy Fong)
2 tablespoons canola oil or olive oil
1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
3 ears shucked corn, broken into small pieces
3 ripe peaches, quartered and pitted (about 1 1/4 pounds)
8 ounces watercress
How to Make It
Combine honey and next 3 ingredients (through oil) in a medium bowl.
With a mallet, pound chicken breast pieces between 2 sheets of wax paper or plastic wrap until very thin; transfer to a medium dish. Spoon 2-3 tablespoons of chile dressing over the chicken; coat well.
Heat a grill pan, grill, or broiler. Lightly coat grill pan, if using, with cooking spray. Sprinkle chicken with salt; grill until cooked through (2-3 minutes per side). Transfer chicken to a cutting board. Continue until all of the chicken is cooked, coating grill with cooking spray as needed.
Grill corn until tender (about 5 minutes), brushing lightly with chile dressing while grilling; transfer to a large platter. Grill the peach quarters, just until grill marks appear (about 1 minute per side), brushing lightly with chile dressing while grilling and coating grill as needed; transfer to the platter.
Scatter the watercress over the platter. Slice the chicken into smaller pieces; transfer to the platter. Combine cooked juices and remaining chile dressing; stir well. Drizzle over salad as desired; serve.

Delicious! My mommy and I both loved it! It toned down the spice just a pinch by adding some hoisin sauce since I didn't have enough chili sauce. Also, I used Szechuan chili sauce since I don't have "Sriracha." Not sure about the difference in composition, but it tasted very very good. Bonus points for ease of preparation and inexpensive ingredients/ingredients that are somewhat on hand. Also, a good use for the many peaches given to us by our neighbors.
