Coffee Brined Chicken Legs

The question is what to make when chicken drumsticks are on a great sale my answer is this recipe Have you seen it? You may have since I have shared it at a previous time last dated Jan. 2011

Thanks for hopping by I just love to welcome new friends. This post I created is for a delicious chicken recipe I hope you enjoy. If you stop by please leave a comment and let me know you was here I will gladly visit your blog and follow you as well

One of my great shopping finds yesterday was a pack of 14 chicken legs for $4. Yeah that was a score for me and I plan to have this recipe from All You October 2007 rather soon

1 1/2 cups strongly brewed coffee

1/4 cup salt

3 tablespoons sugar

2 tablespoons chili powder

1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper

3 cloves garlic, crushed

1 cinnamon stick

8 chicken drumsticks (2 1/2 lb. total)

In a large bowl, stir together 2 cups water, coffee, salt and sugar until salt and sugar are completely dissolved. Stir in chili powder, red pepper, garlic and cinnamon. Add chicken. Top with a small plate, if needed, to keep chicken submerged. Cover and refrigerate for 2 to 4 hours. Preheat broiler. Lift chicken from brine and place on a broiler pan. (Discard brine.) Broil 4 to 6 inches from heat source until browned, about 10 minutes. Turn chicken pieces and broil until second side is browned, 10 minutes more. Set oven to 350°F. Move pan to a rack in middle of oven and bake until drumsticks are no longer pink at bone (cut to test), 10 to 15 minutes longer. Serve hot.

  1. looks delicious , i would love to try this !

    thanks and happy 2011 !

  2. They look so good! Maybe next time I make chicken, I'll pull a few pieces aside and try this out. With the coffee, I don't think I want to give it to my already rambunctious 2 y.o.!

  3. A spiced coffee brine??? That's inspired!

  4. I love chicken drumsticks, what I like even more is the fact that these are baked. Can't wait to try it out. Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier and taking the time to leave a comment!

  5. You really use coffee? My family is quite particular, so I will feast with my eyes on your post.

  6. This sounds wonderful! Anything with coffee has my vote!

    I'm doing Weight Watchers so this would be a perfect addition to my chicken recipes, thanks!
