I’m not a big “chicken” lover. I mean, I love live chickens. They are cute. They make eggs which is cool. They cluck. Clucking always makes me smile. But eating chicken? Eh, not my go-to when it comes to protein choices.
Now don’t get me wrong. I could gobble up some down-home southern fried chicken like it is no body’s business if it is prepared right. Emily’s Broccoli Chicken Casserole is a weekly staple for me! And jerk chicken? Yeah – that I could eat all day long especially if there is a huge helping or twenty of plantain to go with it. But beyond that, I don’t get overly excited about eating chicken.
My go-to chicken recipe is sort of a spin on my popular duck confit recipe. It is really tasty and the drippings make for some excellent dipping. However, I ALWAYS prepare chicken this way and I wanted to try something new.
I had some kombucha brewing and it was a tad too sour for my tastes. Not horribly sour but enough that I wasn’t really wanting to drink it. My daughter took a jar, poured some in, added mint and honey and let it sit for half a day. She had me try some and it was pretty tasty. And then – I had an idea.
Why not turn this general idea into a probiotic rich kombucha chicken recipe?
It took some tinkering but I came up with a pretty darn good little kombucha chicken recipe here! It is definitely kid friendly and SO SO easy to make. Plus it only uses a few ingredients which is nice. Yay for budget friendly.
Now – before you panic about the total time involved in making this kombucha chicken, let me assure you that it is WORTH IT! Hands on time is next to nothing. It is the marinating time that makes this seem like a looooong process. You don’t want to skip this step though. The slow roasted kombucha chicken needs to take a nice long bath in marinate in order to come out amazing.
