  • Whisk the salt and sugar into the water until they're completely dissolved. Place the chicken in a large bowl or pot and cover with the water. Refrigerate it in the brine for an hour or two then remove it and dry well with a clean towel.
  • Preheat your oven to 350 F. Toss the vegetables with the oil and a bit of salt and pepper then pour them into a casserole dish or shallow roasting pan. Sit the chicken on top and roast it until an instant read thermometer registers 160 F in the thickest part of the breast and 165 F in the thigh. Cooking time depends on the size of your chicken.
  • As soon as the chicken is cool enough to handle - and without taking it out of the pan - cut off the legs and slice off the breasts. Cut as much of the meat as possible off the bones and stir into the vegetables. Serve together.

Notes

Brining is one of the oldest kitchen techniques in the world; it's a very common way to preserve food with salt. It's also an amazingly simple way to make the juiciest chicken you've ever had!
