Grilled BBQ Chicken Sandwiches

*Brine the chicken if you have the prep time (it’s so worth it in the end)

In a large stockpot, combine 3/4 cup of kosher salt, 1/3 cup of sugar with 10-12 cups of water and stir until salt is dissolved. Add 3 crushed cloves of garlic. Add chicken pieces and set, covered in the fridge for 2 to 12 hours.

 

Remove chicken pieces from brine, rinse thoroughly and pat dry with a paper towel. Transfer chicken to a Ziplock bag and refrigerate until ready to grill.

 

Ingredients:

Bone in, skin on chicken pieces (whatever trips your trigger: breasts, thighs, drumsticks or all three)

One bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce

Cole Slaw

Rolls (I like Kings Hawaiian Rolls)

 

Directions

Grill 10 minutes, skin side down

Flip, grill another 10 minutes

Flip back to skin side, baste with BBQ sauce and grill 1-2 minutes

Flip, baste again and grill 1-2 minutes

Transfer to a tin foil or metal pan and pour remaining BBQ sauce over chicken

Cover and simmer over heat until chicken is cooked through

 

Eat it as is or pull the meat from the bone, shred it and make BBQ Chicken Sandwiches with Cole Slaw and yummy Hawaiian Rolls.
