    Coffee Brined Chicken Breast

    4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
    3 cups water
    3/4 cup strong coffee
    1/4 cup kosher salt
    1/4 cup brown sugar
    1 lemon cut into slices
    1 tablespoon black peppercorns
    1 tablespoon mustard seed
    1 tablespoon coriander seeds




    Bring one cup of water to a boil and pour into a bowl. Add salt and sugar and stir until dissolved. Add coffee, lemon slices, peppercorns, mustard and coriander seeds. Pour into a shallow baking dish or resalable bag. Add chicken breasts, making sure they are covered in the brine. Refrigerate for about 2 hours. Preheat grill. Remove chicken breasts from brine and place on hot grill. Grill for 2 to 3 minutes per side or until done.

    Coffee and meat. Two of the better things God came up with (after the one thing that tops my list...BREATHING...*mumbles* gutter minds. *mumbles*)

    Try it and let me know how you like it... it's an interesting flavor combination that works well as a marinade.

    Sounds really good, but I seem to be missing something.

    What happens to the other 2 cups of water?

    I've eaten chicken marinated in a strong tea mix and it was pretty good. I've got to try this one. Sounds rather interesting.
