Southwest Brined Chicken

1 whole fryer chicken
1 Gallon Water
2 Cups brown sugar
1/2 cup chili powder
1/2 cup cumin, ground
2 Tbs. oregano, dry
3 Chipoltes
2 Tbs. Garlic, minced
1/2 Bunch cilantro, chopped
1 Cup salt
Add all ingredients together in a medium pot and heat to just under a boil. Stir so that all the sugar dissolves and then let cool to room temp. Submerge chicken in brine and let sit overnight in the refrigerator.

After deciding that cooking was his true passion, he attended the famed Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York, where he learned about the modern and classic cuisines of the world. Chef James graduated from the CIA in early 2004, after which he took on a Sous Chef position at the popular Woodstock NY restaurant, New World Home Cooking.

While at New World, Chef James had the opportunity to work with Chef Ric Orlando, whose creative and multicultural cuisine focuses on the use of organic and sustainable products, as well as offering many Vegetarian and Vegan dishes. Chef James started at Ironstone in the spring of 2005 and was recently awarded the Employee of the Year for 2007.

In September of 2007 Chef James returned to his alma mater to participate in the Professional Chef Certification Program Offered by the CIA and the American Culinary Federation. After 4 long days of testing, Chef James was awarded the title of ProChef II and a Certified Chef De Cuisine.
