The Amazing Coffee!!!

We know by now that coffee can be used for a lot more than just drinking. I personally tried this recipe, and as a chicken and a coffee lover, I was colliding both worlds with bursts of flavor. Chicken can be boring sometimes and finding a new taste can be hard. Coffee really does the trick here. With a little coffee, you can taste the flavors of the grinds mixed in with the chicken. Something I never tasted before, I love it!

Amazing Coffee and Chicken!
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
3 c. water
¾ c. Dark Roast brewed coffee
¼ c. sea salt
¼ c. brown sugar
1 lemon cut into slices
1 tbsp. black peppercorns
1 tbsp. mustard seed
1 tbsp. coriander seeds
Bring 1 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.
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.
Add a salad and some roasted vegetables and you’re all set.
