I poached two chicken breast in an aromatic chicken broth tonight. I was happy with it, but I felt that it needed to be more salt.

Do you recommend brining before poaching, or should I increase the salt within the poaching liquid.

Brining is always a good thing. It changes the cell structure if the meat and enhances the flavor

A dry-brine or rub is also a good alternative!
