If like me you eat a phenomenal amount of chicken, especially chicken breast then you need to do this immediately.
If you’re grilling, baking or ‘Qing your chicken then take note as this will truly rock your world.
By getting your brine on you’ll ensure moist, succulent chicken however you cook it. It turns your standard skinless supermarket chicken breast into a royal rooster.
Here’s why – science, or more specifically osmosis. All meat contains salt and when submerged in a liquid with a higher salt content the liquid is absorbed into the meat which then retains it, stops it drying out and provides more flavor.
This is a fancy brine that gives a great taste, if you don’t have all of the ingredients, (with the exception of the apple juice) to hand try it anyway but you’ll be missing out!
Now to science the sh*t out of your chicken…
You will need:
240 ml of water
240 ml of Apple juice
1 Tbsp of salt
1 Tbsp of honey
1/2 Tbsp of brown sugar
1/2 Tbsp Soy sauce
1/2 Tbsp lemon juice
1/4 Tbsp garlic powder
In a bowl or container mix all of the ingredients together and add the chicken breasts making sure they’re completely covered by the liquid. Cover and put in the fridge for an hour so science can do it’s bit!
After the hour, remove the chicken from the fridge and brush off any excess salt.
Cook as you would normal….you can thank me later.
