I've never brined a chicken before. I think I will give it a try. Also, the musical background to the video is outstanding. I wouldn't mind listening to this in my kitchen while cooking.

what temp for baking and for how long ??

I know the video was about brining the chicken, but I would like to know, at what temp. and how long to cook.
Don't really know that much about brining, but it seems it might change the cooking time, some what.
Video itself made it all look easy and the cooked chicken looked good.

How long does it need to brine? Recommended time?

So, once you've brined the chicken and drain it of the brine, you don't have to rinse the chicken to remove the extra salt? Is it because you're only brining it for a few hours?
I brine my turkey every Thanksgiving, using a brine sold through Williams-Sonoma. Their instructions say to brine between 12 and 24 hours. When you're ready to remove the turkey and cook it, they say to make sure to rinse the bird very well to remove the salt. If you don't do this, the bird ends up too salty and is therefore unpalatable. Although my turkey this year tasted just fine, the gravy turned out almost too salty. I had to water it down more than I preferred, though. Was still good, regardless.

The words on your video can't be seen. Can you change the color?

I have been brining my poultry for about ten years now. My recipe is like this one except I add a quarter cup of allspice berries and a tablespoon of cayenne and brine over night or 24 hours.

always wanted to try this- you made it look so simple-will try the next time I roast a chicken-thanks Pat Rossetto

Yes, brining a chicken is a great way to increase the flavor of chicken, whole or cut. I do it myself when I prepare chicken for frying.
after the brining I put my own spices on and rub them in with some Evoo
and then dredge in flour.
