Recipe by NW Cajun Foodie

One of the biggest complaints about chicken is that the breast tends to dry out during cooking. In this recipe, brining the meat overnight makes it moist and extremely flavorful. If you decide to use boneless chicken it’s only necessary to brine it for 2 to 3 hours. This is not a recipe if you are in a hurry!
