Kikkoman Juicy Bird Project

Last night I try Brining for the first time.  What is Brining?  Brining is salting food, usually a process of letting meat sit in a salt mixture of spices and water for at least 24 hours.  I was asked by Smiley360 to brine a whole Chicken.  They even gave me a recipe to try where you add  Kikkoman Soy Sauce.  Brining with Kikkoma Soy Sauce can kick up your meat a notch.  " All-purpose Kikkoman Soy Sauce is naturally brewed from wheat, soybeans, water and salt. Like fine wine, Kikkoman Soy Sauce is aged for several months to develop its characteristic rich, yet mellow flavor, appetizing aroma and distinctive reddish-brown color."

After I brined the chicken I baked it in the oven for about an hour.  When it came I was suprised by the look of the chicken.  There was so crispiness to the chicken.  I guess the brining does that.  My chicken did come out juicy and moist.  I added the chicken to my caeser salad and it was so good.
