Description

I decided to experiment with my normal go-to brine and added molasses and garlic. In place of regular sugar I used light brown sugar (what can I say, I like molasses). The family loved this. I think this is going to be my new go-to. This is enough brine for 8 pounds of whole chicken or bone-in chicken pieces and up to 10 pounds of skinless, boneless chicken breasts.

Ingredients
  • ¾ cup kosher salt
  • ¾ cup light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground cayenne pepper
  • 1 gallon warm water
  • ¼ cup molasses
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
Directions
  1. 1. Mix salt, brown sugar, garlic, and cayenne pepper together in a large bowl. Pour in water; stir until dissolved. Mix in molasses and soy sauce. Let stand until brine comes to room temperature, about 50 minutes.
