Chicken Brine

Chicken Brine

Ingredients

  • 5 lbs chicken breasts
  • 1/2 gallon cool water
  • 1/4 kosher salt, Diamond Crystal
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar

Instructions

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and whisk to combine.

Place defrosted chicken in storage container, making sure to drain off any water from defrosting.

Pour brine over chicken.

Cover, label and refrigerate.

Notes

This is a weak brine (25% normal strength) and the sugar and salt should dissolve without heating.

Because this is a weak brine, the chicken can remain in the brine without over-brining.

Always use new brine for new chicken breasts. Do not re-use the old brine.
