Default Brined Chicken +pron

G'day Q'ers

I've had this one in the can since last week, but too busy to post. Thanks to Phubar for his post on brined chicken. Although I have done it before, I only did whole chickens. This time I did 4 Chickens and 5kg of Maryland cuts like Phubar.

Here we go: Here's the washed chicken:

Some ingredients for the brine, (apart from the regular stuff) I used sage, Vietnamese Mint, Cracked Allspice Berries..

In the pot, I added fennel, onion, garlic and a few other things.

Chicken in the brine, and then into my shed fridge I have exactly for the purpose...

The chicken was brined overnight and packed in Ziplock bags the next day for freezing. I kept out a few legs for dinner that night, but made my own rub for it.

Here t is sprinkled on the legs...

Now the cooking and the result!

Anyway, it tasted FANTASTIC!

Thanks for looking!
