I brined an 8 pound roaster chicken in a basic 3/4 cup kosher salt, 1/2 cup sugar to one gallon of water brine. I did not rinse, although I patted dry before putting in the oven to roast. I'm afraid it might be too salty... did I screw up?
Baking at any culinary experience level can be tricky--but for the novice, even the most basic ground rules can seem foreign or intimidating.
