Author Notes: Chicken Brined in my home made Pickle Juice —Becky Hering
Prep time: 12 hrs
Cook time: 40 min
cups Pickling Spice tied in Cheesecloth
cup Canning Salt or Kosher Salt
cups White Vinegar
cup Mustard Seeds
dried hot peppers
handful Dill Seeds or Dill heads
- You can make the pickle juice ahead of time or use leftover pickle juice from jars (I use my leftover brine but included the recipe for the brine just in case) bring all the ingredients to a boil and simmer for 30 minutes than let cool.
- Brine chicken in a zip lock bag or bowl overnight 12 hours, I've done cornish game hens, cut up roaster chickens, thighs, legs a whole chicken.
- Grill or cook in a conventional oven at 400 for 1 hour, I prefer grilled over low heat 30-40 minutes
