This is a quintessential summer dish, with coins of corn, tender beans and chicken in a tangy basil-and-cilantro-laced coconut-curry sauce. Replacing full-fat coconut milk with a combination of light coconut milk and low-sodium broth makes the recipe less rich without sacrificing flavor. Use at least three types of beans; start with string beans, wax beans and favas and add flat Romano beans, haricots verts, cranberry beans or limas. Frozen shelled edamame make a perfect substitute for fresh fava beans.
