Whenever I make a whole chicken, I use my Wine Brine. It started with me getting a bottle of white wine as a gift, and I didn’t like the taste of it but didn’t want to waste it. I was making a chicken and decided to add the wine to the brine mixture and the result was a moist, tender, juicy chicken. It doesn’t have to be an expensive bottle, in fact I suggest the cheaper wines. You can also use a red wine, but I prefer a white.
