Default Brine recipe needed

I am making split chicken breasts tonight and I've never used a brine before, so I was thinking of trying it out.
If anyone has a simple brine recipe they could send me, I would appreciate it.

I do standard salt/sugar mixture but for the sugar I use 50/50 brown sugar and pure maple syrup. Great with chicken.

This is one that I use (got it from a person online but can't remember where)

1/2 Gallon Water (8 cups)
1/2 Gallon Apple Juice (8 cups)
1 Cup Kosher Salt
1 Cup Splenda (You can use sugar instead)

I brine them for about 4-6 hours.

I've done this with whole chickens and brined them for 16 hours.
