Brined and Rubbed Chicken Breasts
Let's get grilling
1 For the brine: Stir the ice water, wine, salt, sugar, 2 tablespoons herbes de Provence, peppercorns and bay leaves in a nonreactive bowl until the salt and sugar dissolve. Add chicken and refrigerate for 4 hours, no longer.
2 Light grill using Kingsford® Charcoal with Sure Fire Grooves®. Spread the coals, banking them with a thick (hot) layer on one side, and a thin (cooler) layer on the other.
3 Remove chicken from brine; pat dry with paper towels. Brush breasts with oil. Mix 1 tablespoon herbes de Provence and ground pepper and rub onto breasts.
4 Lightly oil the grill. Place chicken over hot area of the grill; cover the grill. Cook until the undersides are seared with grill marks, about 2 minutes. Turn and sear the other sides, about 2 minutes more. Move to the cooler side of the grill and cover. Cook until the chicken springs back when pressed in the center, about 10 minutes. Let stand for 3 minutes, then serve.
5 *To brine the chicken for 4 to 8 hours, reduce the amount of salt and sugar to 2 tablespoons each.
