Coffee Chicken Breasts

This recipe was written by Big Les & was originally published in The MuscleTalker March 2010 edition
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
700ml water
100g cup strong coffee (instant coffee works fine)
50g cup rock salt
50g cup brown sugar
1 lemon cut into slices
1 tbsp black peppercorns
1 tbsp mustard seed
1 tbsp coriander seeds

Bring the water to a boil and pour into a bowl. Add salt and sugar and stir until dissolved. Add coffee, lemon slices, peppercorns, mustard and coriander seeds. Pour into a shallow baking dish or resealable bag. Add chicken breasts, making sure they are covered in the 'brine'. Refrigerate for about 2 hours. Preheat grill. Remove chicken breasts from brine and place on hot grill. Grill for 2 to 3 minutes per side or until done.

*An alternative method that really gives a wicked strong flavour is to boil the chicken breasts in the 'brine' - you will need to add water to cover the chicken. Different size chicken breasts take different times to cook, mine took 10 minutes but yours could take longer (and that was from when the water was bubbling strongly on the boil).

*Always check your chicken is cooked properly!
