The brining makes for a very tender, moist and delicious chicken.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In the morning, combine 2 tablespoons of salt with 1 cup of water in a large bowl and stir to dissolve salt.
  2. Add chicken to bowl and cover with water.
  3. Place ice cubes over all and refrigerate until ready to use.
  4. Preheat oven to 400°.
  5. Remove chicken from brine and pat dry completely.
  6. Place oil in roasting pan large enough to add chicken in one layer.
  7. Combine flour and seasonings in a plastic bag and add chicken pieces two at a time and shake until coated.
  8. As you take them out of the bag, shake them to remove excess flour.
  9. Lay chicken pieces in roasting pan, skin side down and oven fry until brown and crisp, about 40 minutes to an hour, turning once.
  10. Using a spatula, remove chicken pieces from pan onto paper towels to drain.

This is the first time I have ever used a brime. I had never even heard of it. LOL It really turned out good and tender. It just didn't get brown. I left it in the oven for 60 min. It tasted really good, but couldn't taste the paperika at all. I even added extra. I will be useing this again, though.

Very good tender chicken which we enjoyed. I used "hot salt" for the seasoning salt but I still felt that it needed a bit more seasoning. Thanks for sharing!
