Yes, you can grill brined boneless chicken breasts. In fact, brining the chicken before grilling can help keep it moist and flavorful. Brining involves soaking the chicken in a saltwater solution, along with other seasonings like herbs and spices, for several hours before cooking. This helps to infuse the chicken with flavor and tenderize the meat.

To grill brined boneless chicken breasts, start by preheating your grill to medium-high heat. Remove the chicken from the brine and pat it dry with paper towels. Brush the chicken with a little bit of oil or melted butter to help prevent sticking.

Grill the chicken for 5-6 minutes per side, or until it reaches an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C) using a meat thermometer. Let the chicken rest for a few minutes before slicing and serving.

Keep in mind that grilling times can vary depending on the thickness of the chicken breasts, so it's important to use a meat thermometer to ensure they are fully cooked. Also, be sure to adjust the seasoning and seasoning level of the brine according to your preferences.

Using this brine for boneless skinless breast could be really interesting - you might have to play around with brine time and scale down depending on how much chicken you are grilling. I wonder if the coffee will impart too much bitter flavor without the addition of the milk. It could be delicious…please let me know if you give it a try.
