Ingredients: Water Kosher Salt Brown Sugar Louisiana Hot Sauce Lemon Garlic Cloves Rosemary  Peppercorns CHICKEN:  Whole Chicken or Chicken Pieces

In a large pan or bowl, mix hot water with salt & brown sugar until dissolved. Add cold water.

Add hot sauce, lemon, rosemary and garlic.

Lower chicken into brine. Refrigerate 1 hour or up to 6 hours.

BRINING TIP:  If you are not cooking the chicken until the next day, go ahead and drain the chicken and place in a zip top bag or covered dish in the refrigerator until ready to cook. Brining overnight can result in the chicken being too salty.

Season chicken and grill or roast.

Wet brine chicken produces juicy tender chicken that has tons of flavor. Adding hot sauce to the brine adds just a touch of heat without being overly spicy.
