When our son was young, corn was the only vegetable he'd eat. My husband and I soon got bored with the simple salt and butter topping, so I stirred in some lemon juice and chives.—Sue Kirsch, Eden Pairie, Minnesota

My family loves grilled corn and everyone liked the addition of the chives.

This definitely put a spin on grilled corn! Make sure that you make some extra Chive Butter for later. I loved this recipe! Will definitely be putting this in my recipe book!

I wrapped the corn in foil to make the preparation faster & easier & it turned out delicious!

I wrapped the corn in foil instead of re-wrapping it in the husks, and it turned out fine. Very tender, moist and flavorful! Yum!

Excellent!! Soaked the corn in the husks for one hour. Then, cleaned the corn of the husk and silk. Placed on aluminum foil on the gas grill. Continuously brushing with the butter mixture, and rotating the corn until finished. Absolutely superb!!
