Chicken Brine Recipe
Easy – Make the chicken brine recipe, let it cool and soak your chicken for 8-24 hours before roasting. Inexpensive – This gives process gives you gourmet-quality chicken using inexpensive ingredients you already have on hand. Flavorful – This chicken truly is delectable!
Kosher Salt – Kosher salt is NOT the same as table salt. Make sure you purchase Kosher salt, as they are not interchangable. Using table salt could result in an overly salty chicken. Sugar – This helps add flavor and give you nicely browned skin. I use white sugar, but you can use brown sugar instead. Fresh Herbs – Thyme, parsley and bay leaves are a great combination.
Toss Leftover Herbs In The Freezer – If you have leftover herbs from other recipes, you can save them by placing them in a bag in the freezer. Label the bag with its contents and toss them into the brine as directed. Use Dried Herbs – If you have dried herbs in your pantry, you can use 1 teaspoon of dried herbs for every 1 tablespoon of fresh herbs.
