Morton® Coarse Kosher Salt
1 (3 pound)
chicken, cut into 8 pieces, rinsed and patted dry
unsalted butter or margarine, softened
garlic cloves, minced
ground black pepper
egg yolks, lightly beaten *
Basic brine. I put garlic in with the salt/sugar mix. Used boneless chicken breasts and grilled them. Easy and tasty, doesn't make the chicken salty at all.
Is this a safe recipe for high blood pressure, restricted sodium, patients to use? Is there any way to test the amount of sodium remaining in the meat after removing it from the brine solution? This is a legitimate question and is not meant to be considered frivilous, either by Allrecipes or the submitter - Morton's Salt.
Very good, skin is full of flavor. I didn't add the sugar or the egg. Served it with crusted-brined baked potatoes. You can brine the potatoes in a separate container, then coat in rock salt and seasoning before baking.
I did this for my son's pirate party and it turned out great! All the kids ate their chicken and loved it! I didn't use the garlic, because I didn't want it too spicy for the kids, but even without it the chicken was mouth watering! Thanks for the great recipe!
Yum! All three small children loved it enough to eat two pieces (never happens!) and hubby and I loved it as well. Meat is tender and juicy, skin is crispy and all is very flavorful! Thanks!!
I used a whole chicken, no sugar in brine, marinated 2 hours, grilled it. Might have been that I used a young, organic bird, but best chicken I have ever had!
