Say good-bye to dry, boring chicken breasts thanks to chicken broth and a few simple seasonings. Brining tenderizes, locks in moisture, and seasons the meat throughout. It's a foolproof method for some of the best grilled chicken…ever!

cups Swanson® Chicken Broth or Swanson® Chicken Stock
tablespoons lemon juice
tablespoon chopped fresh basil leaves or 1 teaspoon dried basil leaves, crushed
tablespoon chopped fresh parsley or 1 teaspoon dried parsley, crushed
teaspoon kosher salt
teaspoon ground black pepper
pounds bone-in chicken breast half, skin removed (4 halves)
Stir the broth, lemon juice, basil, parsley, salt and black pepper in a large bowl. Add the chicken and turn to coat. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour or up to 8 hours. (The broth and salt in this brining mixture will pull the flavors of the herbs into the chicken and help the chicken retain more moisture during cooking).
Lightly oil the grill rack and heat the grill to medium. Remove the chicken from the brining mixture.
Grill the chicken for 35 minutes or until cooked through, turning the chicken over once halfway through the grilling time and brushing often with the brining mixture. Discard the remaining brining mixture.
