A question about a recipe: Late Night Coffee Brined Chicken

Bfcc69cf f151 4704 a3f9 24108439fc3c  042611f 632

I have a question about step 3 on the recipe "Late Night Coffee Brined Chicken " from gingerroot. It says:

"Place the ice in a large bowl. Add coffee brine and stir until ice melts. Pour brine in bag with chicken (including oranges), seal and allow mixture to sit at room temperature for two to three hours. Then pat chicken dry and let it dry out for an hour in a bowl placed in the refrigerator. "

Hi AmyRuth, Sorry for the delayed response, I did not get an email notification about your question (though I know the notification issue is being worked on). I'll be honest, this was my first attempt at brining so I have never let it dry out for more than an hour. While a little internet research suggests that it will be fine to let it sit overnight, my only reservation is the acidity of the coffee and whether that would affect your final chicken. Hopefully someone with more experience or knowledge will chime in. If you try it, I'd love to know the result.

In any case, here are some links re: letting a brined chicken sit overnight in the fridge:
