Brining a 3 1/2-4 # Chicken
DirectionsCombine 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.
