Directions:
Pound chicken breasts to an even 1/2" thickness

In large bowl or a gallon-sized zipper-lock plastic bag, dissolve salt and sugar in 1 quart of cold water. Add chicken and if using bag, seal bag, pressing out as much air as possible; refrigerate 30 minutes. Remove from brine, dry thoroughly with paper towels, and sprinkle with pepper. Lightly brush both sides of chicken breasts with vegetable oil. Grill chicken breasts over charcoal or on gas grill 2 to 3 minutes on each side.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Be careful not to let chicken breasts soak in brine for longer than thirty minutes or they will be become too salty.

This seems like a lot of trouble for grilled chicken breasts but they are sure worth it as the brine not only flavors the meat but also makes it cook up nice and juicy.
