Low carb recipe for Sweet Lemon-Brined and Glazed Chicken Breast which belongs to the Poultry recipe category.

Ingredients Needed

  1. 1 pounds (680 g) boneless, skinless chicken breast
  2. 1 tablespoon (15 g) kosher salt
  3. 16 ounces (475 ml) lemon-flavored Fruit2O
  4. 1 tablespoon (15 ml) soy sauce
  5. 1 clove garlic
  6. 1 dash hot pepper sauce
  7. 2 tablespoons (30 ml) lemon juice
  8. 1 tablespoon DiabetiSweet or other polyol-based sweetener
  9. tablespoon soy sauce
  10. 1 clove garlic

Cooking Instructions

Cut the chicken breasts into 4 portions, if needed.

To make the brine: Dissolve the salt in the Fruit2O.

(Heating the Fruit2O will help the salt dissolve.

) Then stir in the rest of the brine ingredients.

Pour over the chicken breasts in a shallow, nonreactive dish small enough that the breasts are submerged and stick the whole thing in the fridge.

Three to 4 hours later, get your grill going.

When the coals are well ashed or the gas grill is heated to medium, pull the chicken out of the fridge and drain off the brine.

Make sure your grill is well oiled and grill the chicken about 7 to 10 minutes per side or until an instant-read thermometer registers 180F (85C).

To make the glaze: While the chicken is grilling, combine the glaze ingredients in a small saucepan and simmer for just 1 to 2 minutes.

Brush over the chicken during the last few minutes of grilling.

If there's any glaze left over, drizzle it over the chicken before serving.
