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.
