A new cooking technique and Juicy Baked Chicken

Last week I learned how to do a new cooking skill called brining for this Juicy Baked Chicken Breast that I cooked for my family and desperately wanted to try. I am so glad that I gave it a try because the chicken was so yummy. Now I want to show you what brining is and how to do it. 

What is brining??? Brining is the process of immersing a piece of meat in a brine solution, which is only salt dissolved in water. The meat absorbs extra liquid and salt, resulting in a juicier and more flavorful final dish. This method is particularly perfect for lean cuts of meat that tend to dry out during cooking! 

The method does seem complicated but to tell you the truth it really isn't all that hard. I promise! 

How do you brine? Place the meat or chicken in this case into a container and fill it with water until meat is covered and pour a few tablespoons of sea salt into the water. Next, you can let the meat sit in the container/bowl for ten minutes at room temperature or seal it tight and place it in the fridge for up to eight hours to a day

How to brine the chicken breasts, place them in a large dish with enough water to cover them. Combine sea salt and stir to dissolve mostly. Let them sit for ten minutes at room temperature, or for up to one day in the fridge.

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Line a baking pan with foil and lightly grease it.

Pat dry the chicken and place onto the previously prepared lined baking sheet. Coat with olive oil. Sprinkle with Italian seasoning (1/2 teaspoon on each side),  garlic powder (1/4 teaspoon on each side), sea salt, and black pepper to taste. Copy on the other side.

Bake for twenty - twenty-five minutes, until firm and no longer pink.
