Ingredients: 

• 1 Whole Chicken, Cut into sections

For the Dunkin’ Donuts Iced Tea Brine:

• 1 Head of Garlic 

• 3 Slices of Ginger

• 2 TBSP of Kosher Salt

• 2 TSP of Black Peppercorn

• 2 TBSP of Brown Sugar

• 1 Large Dunkin’ Donuts Iced Tea (no ice)

For the Dunkin’ Donuts Sweet Tea Glaze:

• 1 Small Dunkin’ Donuts Iced Tea (no ice)

• 1 Cup of Peach Juice

• 1/2 Cup Packed Brown Sugar

• 1/2 TBSP Kosher Salt

• 1-2 TBSP Vinegar (Sherry Vinegar or Apple Cider Vinegar)

Instructions for the Iced Tea Brine:

1.) In a small sauce pot, on medium low heat, lightly brown ginger and garlic. 

2.) Add spices and salt. Toast for a minute or two.

3.) Add brown sugar and Dunkin’ Donuts freshly brewed Iced Tea. Heat until dissolved.

4.) Remove from heat, allow to cool before using.

5.) Place chicken into an airtight container or sealable storage bag. 

6.) Pour the Iced Tea brine over chicken and allow to sit in brine for a minimum of 8 hours (preferably overnight) in the refrigerator. 

Instructions for the Sweet Tea Glaze:

1.) In a small pot, heat the Dunkin’ Donuts Iced Tea, peach juice and brown sugar together on medium low, allowing the liquid to reduce almost in half. 

2.) Once the liquid has reduced, add salt and vinegar to taste.

3.) The glaze is now ready to use and then divide the glaze in half.  Half will be for glazing the chicken during cooking and the other half is for glazing just before serving. 

Cooking Instructions: 

1.) When ready to cook, heat grill and remove chicken from the refrigerator.

2.) Take chicken out of brine, pat dry with a paper towel.

3.) When grill is ready, place chicken on grill (skin side down) and allow to cook for 8-10 minutes on the first side.

4.) Flip the chicken, cook for another 10 minutes, at which time, you can now glaze the chicken sections with the Sweet Tea Glaze.

5.) Cook chicken until juices run clear and thermometer reads a minimum of 165°F.  

6.) Remove from grill, allow to sit for 2-3 minutes before serving.

Here are some additional recommendations for this tasty recipe: 

• The recipes for the Dunkin’ Donuts Iced Tea Brine and the Sweet Tea Glaze are also great to use with pork chops and pork roasts. 

• The Sweet Tea Glaze also pairs nicely with grilled fruit! We used halved peaches and lightly glazed them with the Sweet Tea Glaze and then grilled them.

• A refreshing Iced Tea creation is a fun pairing with this meal. Check out our at home mixology with Dunkin’ Donuts freshly brewed Iced Tea here for a step-by-step guide to creating an Iced Tea bar and tips on flavor combinations.
