      This was my first attempt with brining. This is BETTER than fried chicken, moist and tender, crisp but not greasy. This is the best oven fried chicken I've ever made and the only recipe for it from now on! Made for Alphabet Soup Game. Thanks for posting a winner.

      I have never heard of brining chicken but I gave it a try and I am so glad I did. Absolutely delicious, moist all the way through, so tender I could almost cut it with a fork. I cut the recipe because there was only three of us and now we don't have any leftovers! Next time I make the whole thing. Made for Pac, Spring 2008
