To contrast the bold, smoky spices on our seared chicken, we’re serving it with a side of sweet corn and topping them both with an irresistibly rich honey butter, which slowly melts onto the corn kernels and lightly charred exterior of our chicken. It’s all complete with our vibrant slaw, which gets exciting texture from pickled mustard seeds.
