I usually defend the canned vegetables, but I can't with canned corn. I spent many years convinced that the corn was not for me, until I tried a fresh cob cooked on the grill, what a difference! Since then I like to prepare it at home when it is in season, also in dishes like this fresh sauteed corn and chicken salad.
If we have leftovers of roasted or cooked chicken, the difficulty of the recipe is minimal, but we can also cook in a moment a breast or a pair of contramuslos. The preparation of fresh corn is very simple; you just have to try to choose one quality cob, very fresh, with grains so tender that they can almost be eaten raw.

Remove the beans by straight cuts with a good knife, vertically, leaving the stem clean. Heat a pan with a little oil and add the beans, stirring carefully to separate them completely.
Add all the spices, salt and pepper and saute for about 8-10 minutes. Remove and let cool. Prepare the salad washing the lettuce well and cutting the chicken into strips, or fraying it. Wash and chop the tomatoes.
