Pretty brazen of me, isn’t it? Naming this the BEST brine ever? Better than The Good Eats Turkey Brine, even? Well when you start with a Thomas Keller recipe and Tweak it a bit…. What? Who would DARE to “tweak” a Thomas Keller recipe? Oh, yeah, I’m a little crazy like that! I used this on a turkey, and it turned out to be the “BEST TURKEY EVER!!” according to my husband. I can only imagine the magic it would work on a chicken!
The original recipe can be found in Thomas Keller’s cookbook Ad Hoc at Home, this is my (very slightly changed) recipe
Cooking time = brining time
