The secret to perfect juicy chicken and turkey is simple - Brine them before cooking! I do this every Christmas with the turkey, stays so juicy ! But I flavour the brine with clementines and allspice berries, carroway seeds ,honey and maple syrup
Spiced and Superjuicy Roast Turkey: For me the only turkey is a brined one. Not only does it tenderize and add subtle spiciness, but it makes carving the turkey incredibly much easier. You have only to try this method to be utterly convinced.
