Ingredients

Brine

  • 1/4 cup salt
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 quarts water

Glaze

  • 1/4 cup dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 garlic clove, pasted
  • 1/4 tsp ground fennel

Chicken

  • 1 1/2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts, (3 breasts) see notes
  • salt and pepper

Instructions

Brine

  • Dissolve the salt and sugar in water in a large bowl and place in the chicken. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • Remove the chicken and pat dry with paper towels, then season.

Glaze

  • Melt the butter in a small bowl in the microwave, about 30 seconds, then add all the remaining ingredients and stir to combine.
  • Pour 1/2 of the glaze mixture into another bowl to use as a drizzle after the chicken is grilled.

Chicken

  • Preheat your grill, about 10 minutes for gas and 5 minutes for coals. Clean the grate and lightly coat with vegetable oil.
  • Salt and pepper both sides of the chicken then place on the grill, skin side up for 4 minutes. 
  • Coat the top side with the glaze then turn over and cook 4 minutes. Apply glaze to the second side.
  • Continue to turn and glaze the breasts until the internal temperature is around 150 degrees, (or more to your liking).
  • Place on a serving dish, coat with the reserved glaze and cover with foil 5 minutes.
  • Serve right away. Garnish with chopped parsley if desired.

Notes

Recipe adapted from America's Test Kitchen.
If you have smaller chicken breasts, the glaze would be enough for 4.
