This comes from an episode of "Cooking for Real" with Sunny Anderson. The brining portion is all that is listed here; however, if you are interested in the chicken recipe in it's entirety, it's called "Grilled Chicken with White Wine Mushroom Sauce". I needed a brine for a smaller amount of poultry.
Not overly sweet. From the Wisconsin Dutch chapter of the United States Regional Cookbook, Culinary Arts Institute of Chicago, 1947. While this recipe is written in an old-fashioned way, it is perfectly safe if processed using modern methods.

I always seem to not have buttermilk on hand when I need it. I've used the powdered milk and vinegar version of this which works well, but today I didn't have any powdered milk! This substitution that I found on the internet works just as well.
