Health Highlights


908 gm Water, filtered
1/4 cup Sea Salt
1/4 cup packed Brown sugar
4 breast Chicken breast, boneless, skinless
2 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
2 tbsp Lemon juice
1 tsp, leaves Tarragon, fresh
1 tsp Thyme, fresh
1/2 tsp Rosemary, fresh
1 dash Black pepper


  1. To brine, the chicken put water and salt with molasses or brown sugar in a bowl or zip-top bag. Stir to dissolve and add chicken pieces. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours.
  2. When ready to cook, preheat the grill to high.  Make herb mixture: whisk together olive oil, lemon juice, and chopped herbs. Remove chicken from brine and pat dry. Salt and pepper both sides.
  3. Oil grill grates and brush chicken with herb mixture. Grill first side for about 5 minutes. Brush top (ungrilled) side with herb mixture, turn the chicken, and brush top (grilled) side with herb mixture. Cook until meat is opaque and no pink shows when you cut into the thickest part, another 4-6 minutes, depending on thickness. Brush both sides again and turn, about 30 seconds per side.
  4. Serve.
