DIRECTIONS

  • Whisk the salt and sugar into the water until they are completely dissolved, add 3 stalks of Thyme. Place the chicken in a large bowl or pot and cover with the brine. Refrigerate over night or at least 2 hours, then remove it and dry well with a clean towel.
  • Preheat your oven to 350°F Toss the vegetables and onions with oil and a bit of salt and pepper then pour them into a casserole dish or shallow roasting pan along with the bay leaves. Sit the chicken on top and roast until the thermometer reads 160°F instantly in the thickest part of the breast and 165°F in the thigh. Take a brush and brush the Browning Gravy all over the chicken generously and let cook to the desired color.
  • Cooking time depends on the size of your chicken. Use the leftover thyme as garnish.
