This recipe may sound crazy, but trust me even teenagers(some of the pickiest people I know, lol )will inhale this. I created this recipe years ago, when a roommate decided chicken was the protein for dinner but didn’t have any idea what to do with it. So in a rush, raiding the fridge, this was created. Though the brine was created along the way, the end result is so tasty, you may question why you’ve never thought of this yourself.
1 C Sweet Tea
1 C Water
1 1/2 C Sweet Tea
1/3 C Orange Juice
Juice of 1 Lime
1/3 C Brown Sugar
3/4 C White Sugar
1 1/2 tsp. Paprika
1 tsp. Chili Powder
1 T Honey (optional)
Salt (I used Garlic Salt) and Pepper to taste
-Heat over medium sweet tea, add in water and salt. Stir until salt dissolves. Allow to cool completely.
-Place chicken of choice in plastic, sealable bag, pour cooled brine over chicken. Place chicken in fridge over night, flipping bag over half way through.
-Drain brine off of chicken. Heat grill per the usual temperature for cooking.
-Combine all ingredients in bowl. Brush on chicken as it cooks (I like to save some prior to cooking for dipping later). Enjoy!
