    How much does brining increase the amount of sodium in food? I am wondering if most of it is released in the cooking process, or does the meat hold most of it in?

    Hey WD,

    Why do you think my chicken turned out too salty? I brined (boneless) breasts, which I will not do again. But I mixed 1 cup to 1 gallon and it was a wee bit salty.....
