How To Make brined chicken w/ sautéed onion dipping sauce

  • 1
    For the Dipping Sauce: Sauté the onion in a tablespoon of olive oil until transparent. Let the onion cool. Place the onion in a food processor and add the rest of the ingredients. Give a few good chops until the desired consistency is reached. Place in a container and refrigerate.

    For the Chicken Breast: Combine all of the above in a pot; add the chicken and cover in the refrigerator for a few hours or overnight. Remove from the brine and cut the chicken into desired sized pieces. Heat a 10 inch frying pan with 2 tablespoons of olive oil. If the chicken is cut into ¼ to ½ inch thickness it should take about 6 to 10 minutes over medium heat; turning the chicken pieces occasionally to sauté evenly. Do not overcrowd the pan. Serve with the onion dipping sauce.
