    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This is a basic recipe that allows just the flavor of the meat to shine through, feel free to add in herbs if so desired, This is great to use on chicken or turkey pieces before grilling, make certain that your meat is fully covered in the brine, double or triple the recipe if needed, use kosher salt *only* for this brine

      I brine all my meats and turkey now. It's the only way I have found to ensure soft and juicy results with even cheap, normally tough cuts. This recipe like the others you've posted does the job perfectly. Just a note to all considering brining, it's acts like a tenderizer but I always wash the meat/poultry off before preparing to cook after done brining as the recipe states. Then, prepare with seasonings/sauces as normal. Thanks again Kittencal for litterally teaching me how to cook all these years!

      Used with bone in chicken breasts and grilled. Didn't need to add any sauce, chicken was moist and delicious. Everyone asked what my "secret" was..thank you for posting!

      I made this as written and had a juicy chicken as expected though not as favorful as I would have hoped - that may be the fault of the chicken itself though I suppose. Accordingly I'll give the benefit the benefit of the doubt and rate it a 4 instead of a 3. This recipe is a distant second to Kittencal's other brown sugar brine...will not make this version again.
