Recipe Day: Grilled Blackened Chicken Breast

Timing

  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Brining Time: 1 hour
  • Grilling Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
  • olive oil
  • 4 cups cold water
  • 1/8 cup table salt (non-iodized)
  • 1/8 cup sugar

  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Instructions

  1. Detach all of the gross, muscley trimmings from the chicken breasts and mail to an enemy.

  2. Put breasts into freezer bags and use a rolling pin to flatten them out for even cooking (about 3/4" inch thick).

  3. Prepare a brine of cold water, table salt, and sugar (stirring until dissolved). Remove breasts from bags and brine them. Store in fridge for about an hour.

  4. Prepare the spice rub during fridge time.

  5. Discard brine and pat dry. Rub both sides of (chicken) breasts with olive oil and then coat with the spice rub. Set aside in fridge until grilling time.

  6. Clean and heat grill (medium-high heat). Grill breasts for 6.5 minutes per side directly over the heat.

  7. Remove and serve with pasta.

The brining is critical for keeping the meat extra juicy, and the spice rub ends up tasting a little like a healthy fried chicken crust. Enjoy!
