Soak the chicken pieces in the salted water (8 C. water + 1/4 C. salt) for approximately 2 hours. 

Once the chicken has soaked, rinse the pieces with cold water and pat dry. Mix the wet ingredients together and place the chicken pieces in there until coated. PLace on a cookie sheet and sprinkle liberally with the dry seasoning. 

Grill indoors or outdoors for approximately 5-10 minutes per side or until cooked through. Cover with foil and allow to rest for 15 minutes before serving.
