The recipe says to dissolve the salt and sugar in 1 cup of warm water then divide it between 2 1 gallon zip lock bags. You then put two chicken halves in each bag and fill with cool water. I boiled about 3 cups of water and it worked out great. Either way you end up with as much water as the bags can hold.
