Recipe: Apple Cider Brined Chicken

Rank: Easy

Time execution: 3 hr 35 min

Can be served for: 6 to 8 persons


  • 3 tablespoons kosher salt, divided

  • 3 tablespoons pepper, divided

  • 3 cups apple cider vinegar

  • 2 cup apple juice

  • 3 medium-size whole chicken, cut into 8 pieces

  • 4 cups all-purpose flour

  • 4 cups vegetable oil


  1. Mix 3 tablespoons salt, 3 tablespoons pepper, 4 cups water, vinegar, and apple juice in a 3 gallon container. Add the chicken and allow to marinate for 40 minutes up to 4 hours in the refrigerator.

  2. Add the remaining 2 tablespoon salt and 2 tablespoon pepper to the flour, mix well, and hold until ready to fry.

  3. In a cast iron skillet, add the oil and bring to 450 degrees F over high heat. Remove the chicken from the brine, pat dry with a paper towel, and dredge the chicken in the seasoned flour, coating well and tapping off any excess. Once all the chicken is floured, add to the oil, in batches, and cook until golden brown on both sides, 8 to 9 minutes per side. The internal temperature must be 265 degrees to be cooked thoroughly.
