Are you hungry AeroGardeners? Want a great dish to start the week off right? Use ingredients from your AeroGarden and make CHICKEN PAILLARDS WITH TOMATO, BASIL, AND ROASTED-CORN RELISH.


3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
1 1/2 cups fresh corn kernels
12 ounces cherry tomatoes, halved
1/4 cup chopped green onions
3 tablespoons finely sliced fresh basil
4 large skinless boneless chicken breast halves, tenderloins removed
All purpose flour
1 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil


For relish:
Preheat oven to 375°F. Brush rimmed baking sheet with 1 teaspoon oil. Toss corn and 2 teaspoons oil on prepared sheet. Roast until corn begins to brown, stirring occasionally, about 18 minutes. Transfer to bowl. Mix in tomatoes, green onions, basil, and 2 tablespoons oil; season with salt and pepper.


For chicken:
Using mallet or heavy-bottomed saucepan, pound chicken between sheets of plastic wrap to about 1/2-inch thickness. Pat chicken dry. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, then dust with flour to coat. Melt butter with oil in heavy large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken to skillet and sauté until cooked through, about 5 minutes per side. Transfer to plates; top with relish and serve.
