    I made this for dinner last night I must say was absolutely delicious. However I think I put too much salt in the brine water and along with the salt that I added to the seasonings to put on top of the chicken it was way too salty.

      Thanks for trying the recipe! My recipe doesn’t call for any salt, but glad you enjoyed it nonetheless. 🙂
