Brining a chicken with soy sauce makes a juicier and more flavorful chicken. Great for baked, grilled or fried chicken.

The chicken was juicy, yes. But there was no discernable flavor imparted by the brine. Full disclosure: I forgot to add the seasoned salt. But if that's the only thing that added flavor, then I'd rather use a different recipe.
