Ingredients

Add to Grocery List

8 chicken thighs
olive oil
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 Brined Chicken Thighs

Step-by-Step

  • 1Combine 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.
