1 lime, juice only, plus extra limes to serve
1 cup blanched broad beans, peeled and roughly chopped
½ cup coriander leaves 1 cup sour cream

Place chicken in a bowl with allspice, ½ the cajun spice and oil. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper and mix to coat. Set aside. Heat a chargrill pan over medium heat, cook corn for 20 minutes, turning regularly, or until charred. Remove from heat and cut kernels from the cob. Add chicken to grill, skin side down, and cook for 5-7 minutes each side or until cooked through. Remove from heat and slice.
