For Chicken and Brine:
Boil 1 quart of water. Add salt, sugar, peppercorns, and bay leaves to boiling water. Once salt and sugar are dissolved, add mixture to 7 quarts of cold water. Stir to dilute and mix well. Drop the pieces in the brine and let them sit overnight. Rinse, pat dry and store in extra virgin olive oil.
Grill the oiled chicken thighs under a foil-wrapped brick on both sides, 4 minutes each side.
Serve with treviso and orange salad.
For Treviso and Orange Salad:
Mix all of the above in a large bowl and serve.
