Baked or grilled Chicken pieces

  • Servings: 3 to 4
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes -- Brine 2 hours
  • Cook Time: 40 minutes
  • Total Time: Approximately 3 hours


8 Cups
¼ Cup
1 Tablespoon
Accent Flavor Enhancer
Msg, optional
1 Small Chicken, cut up into 8 pieces
Liquid Coating:
¼ Cup
Vegetable Oil
¼ Teaspoon
Liquid Smoke
¼ Teaspoon
Soy Sauce
Dry Rub Seasoning Mix:
2 Teaspoons
All-purpose Flour
¼ Teaspoon
¾ Teaspoon
Chicken Soup Base
¼ Teaspoon
Dried Marjoram
¼ Teaspoon
Pepper, coarsely fresh ground
¼ Teaspoon
Dried Rosemary, crushed
¼ Teaspoon
Dried Basil
Dried Oregano
Garlic Powder


1. Do ahead: Make the brine by combining all the brine ingredients

in a pot large enough to hold all the chicken pieces and the water.

Dissolve the salt and Accent in the water, then add the chicken

pieces, (a water filled zip bag will hold chicken down).

Refrigerate the pot for at least 2 hours.

2. Do ahead: Combine all the dry rub ingredients and store in a

covered container until ready to use.

3. Do ahead: Combine all the ingredients for the liquid coating and

set aside.

4. Preheat the oven to 350*F.

5. Remove the chicken from the brine and pat dry - discard the brine.

Brush the liquid coating over both sides of each piece of chicken

and then sprinkle generously with the dry rub.

6. Heat a grill or grill pan, one with raised ridges, and cook each

chicken piece by laying it on the grill or pan just long enough to

make the distinctive grill marks. Transfer the chicken to a baking

sheet and BAKE in the oven until it is golden brown and cooked

through, at least 20 minutes on each side. The brining will ensure

that the chicken is moist and tender.

NOTE: The Accent (if using) can be substituted for another brand of MSG.
