This recipe I got when I started eating Paleo - If you like Indian flavors its a must but if you never tried, I can assure you its so good, my fussy young boys love it!

Brining Ingredients:
8 cups water
3 tablespoons salt
2 garlic cloves, whole
1/2 tablespoon soy sauce or coconut aminos for paleo style
1 bay leaf
1 teaspoon whole coriander seeds
1 teaspoon whole cumin seeds
1 teaspoon whole black peppercorns
2-3 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts and/or thighs

Brining Directions:
1. Put water in a large ziplock bag and add the salt, garlic, soy sauce or coconut aminos, bay leaf, coriander seeds, cumin seeds, and peppercorns. Let the salt dissolve.

2. Add the chicken breasts to the bag. This will look gross; ignore it.

3. Put the bag in the fridge and forget about it for 2 hours.

4. Remove the bag from the fridge; ignore that it looks even grosser.

5. Rinse the chicken well. Think about something else as you do this so as not to notice that you’re holding raw chicken.

6. Place in a sieve to drain/dry while you move on to Secret #2.

Spice Blend Ingredients:
1 tablespoon ground cumin

1 tablespoon curry powder
1 tablespoon chili powder
1/2 tablespoon ground allspice
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground black pepper

Spice Blend Directions:
1. Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and mix well with a fork. Preheat a gas grill on high heat, with the lid closed, about 10 minutes.

2. Coat the chicken pieces with the mixture; massage and pat it on lovingly. You want the pieces pretty densely coated.

3. Place the chicken smooth side down on the preheated grill, close the lid, and cook for 4 minutes. Flip the chicken, cook for an additional 3-4 minutes with the lid closed, until the chicken is browned and cooked through.

I made asparagus to go with this dish.
