Brining a Chicken
Good Southern cooks swear to brining a chicken before frying
it. Here's how to do it.
- Pour 4 cups of cold water into a large bowl. Add 1/2 cup sugar and 3/4 cup kosher salt. Stir to dissolve.
- Place pieces of a whole chicken, cut up, in brine, then set aside
in a cool place to soak for two hours.
- Drain, rinse, then pat dry with paper towels. This process keeps the chicken moist
and tender on the inside throughout the frying process.
