richard's brine for chicken

1 Servings
¾ cup Salt; (non iodized)
½ cup Sugar
¼ cup Molasses
1 tablespoon Onion powder
1 tablespoon Garlic powder
1 gallon Water

This is enough for two chickens. You can add more spices or leave them out all together. I brine chickens for 12 to 16 hours in the refrigerator. The chickens should be rinsed with cold water before cooking. I suppose you could use a rub too. I don't (my wife is to busy for that).
