Tender and Juicy Brined Chicken Breast with Sautéed Onion Dipping Sauce

July 2, 2013

Chicken breasts can all too often become dry as a bone once cooked, but brining the meat first adds both moisture and flavor. We love this delicious chicken recipe from Living the Gourmet which features a sweet onion dipping sauce. For the best and most tender results, soak chicken in the brine solution for at least a few hours, if not overnight.
