Brining chicken thighs is a juicy and tender way to serve up chicken at your next dinner party!
prep time5 Min
cook time40 Min
8 chicken thighs
for the brine:
4 cups water
3 tbs. salt
1 tbs. ground black pepper
2 bay leaves
2 cloves garlic
1 tsp. paprika
1 tbs. lemon juice
1 tsp. vinegar
How To Make
Combine all of the ingredients for the brine in a large pot; add the chicken thighs and refrigerate for at least two to three hours or overnight.
Remove the chicken thighs from the brine and pat dry with a paper towel.
Heat a large frying pan with 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Add the chicken thighs. Do not overcrowd the pan. The chicken will not get a beautiful golden color if you do.
When one side is golden gently turn over and cook on the other side.
Cooking time should take about 40-45 minutes on the stove-top or you may bake the chicken with a drizzle of olive oil at 350 degrees for about 40-45 minutes.
