Add all of the above items, except for the chicken to a food processor.  Blend well.

Preheat Grill to Medium Heat.  Cook until chicken is done.

Low Country Corn and Red Potatoes

Clean red potatoes and set them aside.  Get a large stock pot and fill will 2 quarts of water.  Bring water to a rolling boil.
Add both the red potatoes and corn to the boiling water and allow them to cook for about 20 minutes, then turn down heat to a simmer until serving time.
