DIRECTIONS

  • Combine all ingredients in a large pot (I use a large zip-lock bag).
  • Add the chicken and let soak in the refrigerator for 3 1/2 to 4 hours (or 1 hour per pound).
  • Rinse the chicken or other meat and cook as you usually would. It will be edible, but very salty if this is not done.
  • I have also used this techique for brining pork and beef.
