Roasted Brined Chicken

READY IN: 25hrs
Recipe by Huskergirl

I looked at several recipes for brining and roasting a chicken. I did not find one that I liked but did like several parts of different recipes so I made up my own. I had never brines before and WOW what a difference. My DH was shocked as was I at how moist the chicken was.

My niece "volunteered" me to cook for her daddy (my brother) for Father's Day. I decided to try this because I was hoping it would give boneless skinless chicken breast some flavor and keep them moist. Well, I can say it more than met my expectations and was a big hit with everyone yesterday. I made 1/2 of the recipe and brined 3 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts overnight, rinsed them and pan fried them in a bit of olive oil and a little shake of Mrs. Dash. The chicken was outstanding in flavor, tender and moist. All my family complimented it, more than once and requested it again. Love this for flavor, moistness, tenderness and of course the easiness/simple ingredients of it. This is a keeper, thanks Huskergirl! Also need to add that this was my first time brining and it won't be the last!
