Wet Brine for Chicken or Turkey

Brining will help keep the chicken (or other meat) moist while cooking. It will also help draw the flavors into the chicken or turkey.

• 2 quarts of water
• 1/2 cup sugar
• 1/2 cup salt
• 1 bottle of All Spice Cafe Sauce – Caribbean Spice or Chipotle Garlic work really well

Mix all of the ingredients in a pot large enough to fit a 3 – 4 lb chicken. Note: For a larger bird, like a turkey, multiply the ingredient amounts accordingly.

Let the bird sit covered in the brine for minimum of 1 hour, but no longer than 2 hours. Cook chicken as you normally would – in the oven or on the grill.
