Hog Brined Chicken

March 11, 2022

When the hardest part of the recipe is finding room in the fridge for the meat to marinate overnight, you know you have a winner. Not only does the overnight marinade process provide time for all the flavors to seep into the chicken, it also fills the chicken with fluids to keep it moist while cooking. Leaving the meat in the brine for 12-24 hours (overnight) rewards the patient chef with flavor packed, juicy chicken.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Stuart's Spices House Hog Rub
  • 8-9 cups water
  • 4-8 pieces of chicken (can use quartered chicken or boneless thighs)
  • Optional: 1 Tbsp Stuart's Spices Oregano

Instructions

  1. In a large pot, combine the water and Stuart's House Hog Rub. Stir to dissolve most of the Hog Rub
  2. When the Hog Rub is mostly dissolved, completely submerge the chicken in the brine. Cover and refrigerate.
  3. After the chicken has marinated for 12-24 hours, remove the chicken pieces and cook with one of the two following methods:
  4. Bake at 350 F for 35 minutes OR
  5. Grill over medium high heat until chicken is cooked, ~30 minutes
