Sweet Tea and Molasses-Brined Spatchcock Chicken Recipe

sweet tea is not just for drinking: the herbaceous and tannic notes of black tea, together with the citrus zest and well, the sweetness, create a subtle brine for the chicken. The molasses adds rich flavor and turns the bird’s skin to a beautiful mahogany, while the tea brine leaves the meat succulent and falls off the bone. Spoon this chicken on a barbecue or in the oven for dinner and enjoy this signature Southern drink in a whole new way.
