Essential Kitchen Equipment

Directions

🍖 Brining Pro Tip

For Juicy Chicken, brine the chicken in a solution of 2 Cups of Water with 2 Tablespoons of Salt for 30-45 minutes prior to baking. If you brine, make sure to only lightly salt the chicken prior to baking.

Step 1 Season the chicken with salt, black pepper, chili powder and place it on a baking sheet.

🌡 Internal Temperature Check

Step 3 Prepare spicy mayo sauce by mixing mayo, sriracha, grated garlic, and lemon juice and serve it with the chicken.
