Once you have your brine prepared, you need to allow your chicken breast to brine for 24 hours. Once the chicken breast has brined for 24 hours, remove it from the brine, rinse the chicken breast, pat it dry, and then proceed with the rest of your preparation. If you want to marinade it this is the time to do it. Place the chicken breast into a plastic container with a lid or into a sealable bag. Add the marinade and return it to the refrigerator for 2-4 hours. If you are going to go straight to the grill with it, make sure that you season it well on both sides and have your grill pre-heated.
Boneless skinless chicken breast cooks rather quickly so you will want to keep your thermometer at the ready. Grilling boneless, skinless chicken breast requires monitoring the cooking and pull temperatures closely so that it is removed from the grill at the right time to prevent the chicken from being too dry when it is finished.
