Grilled Chicken Breasts with Grilled Corn & Tomato Salad

I love watching cooking shows & especially love America's Test Kitchen & Cooks Country.  This recipe is from the Cooks Country's website, which I printed off 3 years ago.  It makes a really good, quick, fresh tasting summer meal with corn, basil & tomatoes.   Please try it!
2 ears of corn, husks & silk removed
2 t. olive oil plus 1/4 additional cup
salt & pepper
2 T. lemon juice
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 T. chopped fresh basil
1 T. Dijon mustard
1 T. honey
4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, about 1/2" thick
1 ripe beef steak tomato

Wrap corn in microwave-safe plastic wrap (I actually use a microwave bag) & microwave on high , about 3 minutes, turning corn over halfway through cooking.  Remove plastic wrap & brush corn with 2 t. olive oil & season with salt & pepper.

Whisk lemon juice, garlic, basil & remaining 1/4 cup olive oil in small bowl & season with salt & pepper.  Transfer 2 T. of dressing to medium bowl & whisk in the mustard & honey. 

Pat chicken dry, season with salt & pepper & toss in the honey-mustard dressing to coat.

Grill corn & chicken over hot fire.  Grill chicken about 3 minutes per side.  Transfer to platter & cover with foil.  Grill corn until charred, about 5-6 minutes.  Remove from grill, cool slightly & cut kernels from the cob.

Combine corn, tomato & remaining dressing (without honey & mustard) in medium bowl & season with salt & pepper.

Serve corn salad with chicken.
