Butcher twine

Roasting pan

Instructions to make the Peach Tea Brined and Roasted Chicken:

Start by trussing or tying the chicken so that the legs stay in place while roasting. Place the chicken into the large container. Pour the brine over the chicken until it is completely submerged. Cover and place in the refrigerator for 4-6 hours. Remove the chicken from the brine, place on a roasting pan and pat dry with clean paper towels. Preheat the oven to 375F°. Place the chicken in the oven and let it roast until a thermometer inserted into the chicken reads 165F°. (About 1 hour and 20 minutes depending on the size of the chicken). Let the chicken rest at room temperature for 10 minutes before slicing.
