• 1 quart water, warm • 1/4 cup kosher salt, plus more to taste • 4 chicken breasts, boneless, skinless, and pounded to even thickness • freshly-cracked black pepper, to taste • 2 tablespoons butter, melted • 1/4 cup everything seasoning blend, divided


Step 1

Fill a large bowl with the 1 quart of warm water and the 1/4 cup of the kosher salt.

Step 2

Mix until most of the salt is absorbed.

Step 3

Add the chicken breasts and let them sit in the mixture to brine for 15 minutes.

Step 4

Cover the bowl and refrigerate for up to 6 hours.

Step 5

Remove the chicken breasts from the brine, rinse them with cold water, and pat them dry with some paper towels.

Step 6

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

Step 7

Place the chicken breasts in a single layer in a large baking dish.

Step 8

Brush both sides of the chicken, turning once, evenly with the melted butter.

Step 9

Sprinkle about 1 tablespoon of the seasoning blend evenly on top of each chicken breast. Gently pat the chicken to add the seasoning.

Step 10

Mist the chicken with a brief shot of cooking spray.
