    Perfect every time we make this. The breasts always turn out juicy and full of flavor. Can be used as the main for your dinner, or cut up for salads and other things.

    Good, easy baked chicken. I tend to not enjoy baked chicken breasts, but these turned out quite nice and the process is easy to boot. Just have to remember to brine!

    This was wonderful, brined a full 2 hours and glad I did. As for complaints of tough chicken, do yourself a favor and buy quality chicken, I used Perdue. Didn’t change seasoning at all. Will be top on my summer party lists.

    Very good and tender, I added some bbq and ketchup for a little more flavour to cancel out some of the salt

    Great way to get Juicy Chicken Breasts. left mine in the brine for an hour, followed the directions. However baked time had to be extended an additional 10 minutes. Juicy, juicy oven baked chicken breast, I will now not make it any other way.

    I don’t like chicken breast because of how dry it can be, but made this last night and I was surprised how juicy it came out! Only 4 stars because the flavour was lacking for my liking.
