Daniel Breaker, award-winning actor from the hit Broadway show "Hamilton," is joining TODAY to show off his off-the-stage talent: cooking!

He's making a few of his favorite fall recipes: smoky, crispy tea-brined fried chicken and sweet potato soufflés in orange cups.

Smoky Tea-Brined Fried Chicken

"Fried chicken is crunchy, salty and juicy, and it's the comfort food that spans generations and cultures," says Breaker. "Browning the chicken before cooking guarantees a juicy and well-flavored bird. The addition of tea deepens the flavor even further."

Sweet Potato Soufflé in Orange Cups

"Hollowed out orange cups are great for serving individual soufflés — and you don't have to purchase additional ramekins!"
