Chickens that are brined have a juicier texture and more flavourful meat. A full brining process can take anywhere from a few hours to an entire day, but this quick brine is relatively fast and enhances the flavour of the chicken. Don’t be shocked by the amount of salt used—it does not leave the chicken tasting salty! Use only kosher or coarse salt, never table salt.
