Peel the leaves off the corn on the cob and then cut the kernels off with a knife and grind them up in a food processor.

Gradually add the milk and the mixture will start to thicken, then add the salt, sugar and the basil finely chopped. Cook until the mixture has thickened.
Grease the individual clay dishes and in each one place 4 heaped spoonful of the pino mix, 1 chunk of skinless roast chicken and slices of the boiled egg.
