Hot Sauce Chicken

Some like it hot...and chicken is especially tasty when it sits in a hot sauce brine and served with hot sauce on the side for a drizzle or dunk.  It's also great for a cold/sinus pressure situation.  I put the chicken in the brine at 2 and it was ready to go at 5.




Hot Sauce Chicken

2-3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 cup Coca Cola
2 tbsp hot sauce (I used Frank's)
1/2 tsp sea salt
2 cloves garlic, smashed
1 sprig thyme

Place in a large plastic bag that seals.  Allow to marinade in the refrigerator for 3 hours.

Combine the following in a bowl for dredging -


1/2 cup flour
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/2 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp garlic powder

Remove chicken breasts from bag and dredge through the flour mixture before placing in a hot frying pan with 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil.  Fry both sides and cook until the internal temperature of the chicken is 165°.  Serve with your favorite hot sauce.
