| Preparation | Preheat oven to 350ºF. Combine eggs and flour in a blender or large bowl. Add cream, milk, honey, pepper, dill, parsley, 1 cup corn kernels and salt. Blend until just incorporated.

In a large skillet over medium heat, sauté ground chicken in olive oil until cooked through. Drain and add onion, carrot and bell pepper. Cook until onions are translucent. Stir in remaining corn, blended ingredients and cheese. Pour mixture into a buttered 9x13-inch casserole pan. Bake uncovered for 30 to 35 minutes, or until golden-brown and set in the middle. Pour salsa onto individual plates and serve with a square of casserole on top.
