DIRECTIONS

  • Remove chicken from package (or if living in a country where chicken is really fresh, remove feathers, entrails (do not crush any bits) head, feet and wingtips and tail).
  • In a large bowl or clean sink put the chicken or cut up pieces of meat then pour on cold water until covered then add 1/2 cup of table salt or use less and 1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar.
  • Move the chicken around gently in this mixture for 10 to 15 minutes. Less time is ok if you see that the skin hangs loose on the meat.
  • You can add sugar or brown sugar, molasses, honey, karo syrup, pancake syrup or artificial sweetner to the soak, but that and the salt are a matter of taste.
  • Rinse gently with more clean cold water.
  • Now you are ready to cook stovetop, oven, crock pot, campfire or whatever.
  • Even an old elderly bird will usually be tenderized.
  • My grandma also used this on game to make it tender and moist.
  • Remember to use a sink cleanser that contains bleach on the sink, because chicken is a funny meat. You need to be careful with utensils after they were touched by any raw meat.
  • I mention the clean up, because when I was a new cook I did not know.
