Savory Chicken Brine Reviews

  • The brine results some very tender chicken for my dinner.

  • The chicken was juicy, yes. But there was no discernable flavor imparted by the brine. Full disclosure: I forgot to add the seasoned salt. But if thats the only thing that added flavor, then Id rather use a different recipe.

  • Very good recipe. thanks.

  • I used this brine before grilling chicken halves. The meat was probably the BEST chicken I have ever grilled. Period. It was moist, flavorful, perfect. I brined my chicken for about 8 hours. I will definitely use this recipe again

  • I have recently discovered the value of brining chicken and my kids have also fallen in love with it. We started with a rather sweet recipe that they enjoyed but then I found this one and they equally loved it and appreciated that it wasnt as sweet as their other favorite. This will be our other go to for brine

  • We brined a large chicken and I let it sit on the fridge overnight. We split the chicken up the back and flattened it and cooked it indirect on the Webber and it was wonderful. This is the best brine that we have tried.

  • This was great I decreased salt/sodium a bit, & sugar, due to family members with health issues - but you have to use enough to allow the flavored liquids to get into the meat. Used "Red Robin" seasoning salt for that ingredient; Used chopped celery - didnt have celery seed. I was only able to brine for 2 hrs. I did both split chicken parts & boneless/skinless chicken breasts. Conv roasted the split whole chicken; grilled the chicken breasts. Everyone loved the flavor & the juiciness. All About Trends
