Directions:
For the brine, combine the water, salt, sugar, garlic, and thyme in a 2-gallon size resealable plastic bag. Add the chicken, close the bag and refrigerate 2 hours or more.This allows the salt and seasonings to penetrate the chicken.

Take the chicken out of the brine, pat it dry on paper towels. Arrange the chicken pieces on a preheated grill and cook, turn once mid way, and cook for a total of 15 min. Then brush the chicken with the sauce and continue cooking until the chicken is cooked through, 5 to 10 min. more.

I use this brine soak almost every time I cook any kind of chicken, baked or barbecued. It makes the chicken so tender!
