Tasty Tuesday-Whole 30 Grilled Chicken and Corn with Jalapeno and Lime Dressing

In keeping with my tradition, I am still going to be posting recipes that I figure out and love!  I love to cook, and try out new things. I want to go into some more healthy recipes, things that hopefully will translate with the whole family, and some comfort food too!  Now without further adieu...


I BIG PUFFY HEART Food And Wine Magazine's recipes. I have two of their cookbooks, and use them more than any other I own.  This one is from their Whole 30 recipes link.




  1. Jalapeno Lime Dressing
  2. 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  3. 5 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  4. 2 tablespoons minced jalapeños (with seeds)
  5. 1 1/4 tablespoons kosher salt
  6. 1/2 teaspoon pepper

SALAD

  1. 4 ears of corn
  2. 2 bunches scallions, halved
  3. 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  4. Kosher salt
  5. Pepper
  6. Four 6-ounce boneless, skin-on chicken breasts
  7. 1 tablespoon rosemary leaves, chopped
  8. 1 pint Sun Gold tomatoes, halved
  9. 1/4 cup thinly sliced basil
  10. Chopped chives and finely grated lime zest, for garnish
  1. MAKE THE DRESSING In a bowl, whisk all of the ingredients.
  2. MAKE THE SALAD Light a grill. Remove all but the last layer of green husk from the corn. In a bowl, soak the corn in water for 10 minutes, then drain.
  3.  In a bowl, toss the scallions with 2 tablespoons of the oil; season with salt and pepper. In another bowl, coat the chicken with the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil and the rosemary; season with salt and pepper.
  4.  Grill the corn, scallions and chicken over moderate heat, turning occasionally, until the corn and scallions are lightly charred and the chicken is cooked through, 5 minutes for the scallions and 15 minutes for the corn and chicken. Let the chicken rest for 5 minutes, then thinly slice across the grain.
  5.  Chop the scallions into 1-inch pieces. Remove the husks and cut the corn kernels off of the cobs. Transfer the scallions and corn to a large bowl; add the tomatoes, basil and half of the dressing and toss. Transfer the salad to a platter. Top with the chicken and garnish with chives and lime zest. Serve the remaining dressing at the table.

SAVED BY GRACE ALONE, ARE YOU SURE? BY STEVE FINNELL

There are many believers in Christ who honestly think they were individually selected to be saved by grace alone. They insist that no obedience to God is necessary. If God saves by grace alone then nothing is required of the person being saved, they reason.

First there is no Scripture that states men are saved by "grace alone."

The proof text for saved by "grace alone" is Ephesians 2:8-9 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, 9 not of works, least anyone should boast.(NKJV)

1. It does not say saved by grace alone. The word alone is not used nor is it implied in Eph. 2:8-9.

2. It says saved by grace through faith. God's grace and man's faith are required.

3. God does not give men the gift faith so they may be saved. The gift mentioned here is salvation, not faith.

4. Men are not saved because of their good works or keeping the Law of Moses.


Grace is offered to all men. Titus 2:11 For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men.(NKJV)

Faith comes by hearing the gospel. Faith is not a gift forced on unbelievers so they can be saved. Romans 10:17 So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.(NKJV)

Obedience is required to be saved. Romans 10:16 But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Isaiah says, "Lord who has believed our report?"(NKJV) If men are saved by grace alone, then all men would believe the gospel and be saved.

Obeying the gospel is essential to be saved, and men have a choice. 2 Thessalonians 1:7-8....the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven with His mighty angels, 8 taking vengeance on those who do not know God, and those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.(NKJV)

Why would Jesus take vengeance on those who do not obey the gospel if God selects each individual to be saved by grace alone, and then forces them to believe the gospel? Is that the God you worship?

Jesus told all men the gospel not just for a select few. Mark 16:16 "He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.(NKJV)

Obey the gospel by believing and being immersed in water, resulting in salvation, or reject the gospel and be condemned. All men have a choice.

Saved because of Grace. Ephesians 2:8. That is not a good work nor is it keeping the Law of Moses.

Saved because of believing in Jesus. John 3:15, Romans 10:9. That is not a good work nor is it keeping the Law of Moses.

Saved because of repentance and baptism. Acts 2:38, 1 Peter 3:21, Acts 3:19. Those are not good works nor are they keeping the Law of Moses.

Being obedient to the gospel of Jesus Christ is not a good work nor is it keeping the Law of Moses.

MEN ARE NOT SAVED BY GRACE ALONE.
MEN ARE NOT SAVED BY FAITH ALONE.
MEN ARE NOT SAVED BY BAPTISM ALONE.
MEN ARE NOT SAVED BY REPENTANCE ALONE.

MEN ARE SAVED BY OBEYING THE TOTAL GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST.
