    1 sweetpotato, 5" long Sweet potato
    0.5 cup Fresh Cut Whole Kernel Corn (by TRAVELINKRYSTA)
    1 serving Tomatoes, Roma, Fresh, 1 Med
    1 tbsp chopped Shallots
    1 fruit (2" dia) Limes
    1 serving Poblano Pepper (1) Fresh (by NITAINMN)
    1 tbsp Cilantro, dried
    2 leg, bone and skin removed Chicken Leg
    .5 cup (8 fl oz) Barbecue Sauce
    1 grams Honey
    1 tbsp Crisco Pure Vegetable Oil
    1 serving Country Crock Margerine (by CRCGALATEA)


1. Wash and dry all produce. Adjust rack to upper position and preheat oven to 425 degrees. Cut sweet potato into ˝-inch cubes. Drain and rinse corn. Core, seed, and dice tomato. Halve and peel shallot, then cut into ˝-inch-thick slices. Halve lime. Core, seed, and dice poblano. Finely chop cilantro. Toss sweet potato with a drizzle of oil, salt, and pepper on one side of a foil-lined baking sheet. Roast in oven for 15 minutes (we’ll add more to the sheet then). Meanwhile, pat chicken dry with a paper towel and season all over with salt and pepper. Heat a drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium-high heat (use a nonstick pan if you have one). Add chicken and cook until skin is crisp, 5-6 minutes per side. Remove sweet potato from oven, toss on sheet, then add chicken to sheet. Roast until sweet potato is tender and chicken is cooked, about 15 minutes. Add corn and 1 TBSP butter to pan used for chicken over medium-high heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly charred in spots, 5-8 minutes. (TIP: If corn pops, cover pan.) Season with salt and pepper. Remove from pan and set aside in a medium bowl. Add poblano, shallot, and a drizzle of oil to same pan over medium-high heat. Cook, tossing often, until slightly blistered, 4-5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside in bowl with corn. In a small bowl, stir together barbecue sauce, a squeeze or two of lime, and as much hot honey as you like (start with half and add more to taste). Remove sweet potato from baking sheet once tender and transfer to bowl with veggies. Heat broiler to high. Set aside half the barbecue sauce mixture for serving, then brush chicken with remaining half. Broil until sauce is tacky and beginning to char, about 3 minutes. Toss tomato, cilantro, and a squeeze or two of lime into bowl with veggie mixture. Season with salt and pepper. Divide between plates along with chicken. Serve with reserved sauce on the side for drizzling over.
