  1. Heat the grill to medium high heat. I put the salmon in tinfoil to avoid sticking. In a bowl mix butter, basil, lemon zest, garlic powder and salt and pepper. Brush the salmon filets with butter mixture. Cook until tender on grill. Grill the corn. Once done cut the corn kernels off and mix with remaining basil, salt and pepper, and cherry tomatoes. Serve the corn/tomato mixture over salmon and eat.

  1. Mix 1/4 cup cornstarch, salt, and pepper together in a gallon-sized bag. Add the chicken pieces, seal the bag, and shake until the chicken is well coated.
  2. Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering, about 3 minutes. Add the chicken in batches, making sure not to crowd the pan, and cook about 2 minutes per side. The chicken might not brown, but the cornstarch coating will become crispy and dry. The chicken will not be completely cooked at this point, and that is OK. Transfer the chicken to a 6-quart slow cooker and repeat with any remaining chicken.
  3. Whisk the sugar, rice vinegar, soy sauce, cider vinegar, sesame oil, 1 Tbsp cornstarch, garlic, ginger, and pepper flakes together in a small bowl. Pour over the chicken, then scatter the dried chile peppers around the chicken.
  4. Cover and cook until chicken reaches 165F, 1 1/2 to 2 hours on the LOW setting or 45 minutes on the HIGH setting. Toss the cooked chicken with the sauce. Serve with rice. Enjoy!

Instructions
  1. Pound the chicken between two sheets of plastic wrap with a mallet until 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. Transfer to a large bowl and add the onion, 3/4 cup buttermilk, garlic, 1/2 tsp salt and pepper. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes and up to 4 hours.
  2. Meanwhile cook the bacon in a medium skillet over medium heat, turning, until crisp about 8 minutes. Remove to a paper towel lined plate to drain. Reserve the drippings for the dressing. Chop the bacon.
  3. Fill a small with ice water. Bring a medium saucepan of water to a boil. Add the eggs and cook 4 minutes, then transfer 1 egg to the ice water, continue cooking the remaining eggs for an additional 6 minutes, then drain and cool.
  4. Make the dressing. Remove the 4 minute egg from the ice water and carefully peel and transfer to a blender. Add the oil, bacon drippings, 1/4 cup buttermilk, vinegar, mustard, 1/4 tsp salt and pepper. Blend until smooth and slightly thick. Refrigerate at least 15 minutes.
  5. Preheat the grill to medium-high. Lightly brush the grill with oil. Drain the chicken, and onion, discard the garlic. Pat the chicken dry, lightly season with salt and pepper. Grill the chicken turning once until cooked through, about 8 minutes. Grill the onion turning occasionally until lightly charred about 10 minutes. Roughly chop.
  6. Peel and chop the eggs. Toss the romaine, grilled onion, tomato, avocado, blue cheese, and 1/4 cup of the dressing in a large bowl. Divide the chicken among plated and top with the salad, bacon, and eggs. Drizzle with the remaining dressing. Enjoy!
