Ingredients for the Peach Tea Brined and Roasted Chicken

  • 1 whole chicken
  • 1 batch Peach Tea Brine
  • Container that is large enough to fit the chicken submerged into the brine and to fit into the refrigerator
  • Butcher twine
  • Roasting pan

To make the Peach Tea Brined and Roasted Chicken

Start by trussing or tying the chicken so that the legs stay in place while roasting. Place the chicken into the large container. Pour the brine over the chicken until it is completely submerged. Cover and place in the refrigerator for 4-6 hours. Remove the chicken from the brine, place on a roasting pan and pat dry with clean paper towels. Preheat the oven to 375F°. Place the chicken in the oven and let it roast until a thermometer inserted into the chicken reads 165F°. (About 1 hour and 20 minutes depending on the size of the chicken). Let the chicken rest at room temperature for 10 minutes before slicing.
