Ingredients

Brine

Chicken

Preparation

For the Brine

Place 1/2 the water and the rest of the ingredients in a pot and bring to a boil. Turn off heat and add the rest of the water, cold or iced. Refrigerate the brine until cool.

For the Chicken

Trim off fatty ends of chicken and remove giblets. Truss chicken with butcher's twine and place in the cold brine overnight or for a minimum of 8 hours. Remove the chicken and pat dry with a paper towel. Season with salt and freshly cracked pepper.

Preheat oven to 400° F.

Place chicken in an oven-safe stainless steel sauté pan and roast for 1 hour. Remove from oven and tilt pan toward you, pooling the grease. Place the herbs in the grease. With a large spoon, baste the chicken with the herb mixture. Let chicken rest, then slice and serve.
