I have a question about the recipe "Moorish Paella " from NWB.

when you brine the chicken, is that with a brining solution or do you just heavily salt it?

In this case, it's a "dry brine" so there's no water added to the salt to make a solution.

A wet brine also works. Put the chicken in salted water and let it sit for at least a few hours if not over night.
