Recipe Notes

Corn by itself makes a great creamy sauce. This recipe was inspired by that fact – I was thinking along the lines of a very thick corn chowder as the sauce. The sauce turns out both sweet and savory, with the onion and chicken adding the right sharp and umami notes. The lemon and basil give the whole recipe a terrific freshness.

"The day of fortune is like a harvest day, We must be busy when the corn is ripe."
