Brines, Dressings, and Sauces, Oh My!

Brine for Poultry

For Whole chicken (6 lbs or less) or 6 each leg quarters, or 6 ea boneless breasts

  • 12 oz. water
  • 1/8 cup sugar
  • ¼ cup kosher salt
  • 2 bay leaves
  • ½ bunch thyme
  • 1 tsp chili flakes
  • 2 tbs dried Herbs d’ Provence.
  • 1 tbs cracked white pepper corns
  • 2 x 12 oz. bottles Clearly Kombucha Original
  1. Bring water, salt & sugar to boil, remove from heat. Add spices and let steep for 5 minutes. In a large water tight container add poultry, cooled salt/sugar/ spice mixture & 2 bottles of CK Original.
  2. Refrigerate overnight for legs & breasts or 2 days for whole bird. Pat poultry dry after removing from brine. Season with pepper and spice mix of your choice. Suitable from grilling or roasting.

Personal notes: LOVE this for a rotisserie chicken. Sliced lemon wheels under the breast and in the cavity really bring out the tea flavors. Place sliced baby Yukon gold potatoes under the roasting chicken with 1 hr left in cook time for THE BEST OMFG potatoes you will ever have.
