I just realised the chicken breast I bought is "lightly brined for tenderness and flavour". I thought it was just plain fillets.

Does anyone know if it can still be used for things like stirfries and curries, or if the brining will effect the flavour.

Now I know I need to read the labels even when buying something as simple as chicken fillets mad.gif

It may just be a little saltier so check your seasoning as you go.

Brining makes the meat a little softer which means it may have a tendency to fall apart quicker in a slow cooker, however this is rarely a problem with breast meat as it is quite tough to start with. Other than that yeh just check the seasoning before adding salt.

Thanks for the replies.

I ended up changing my mind on what I was going to cook, since it was a sweetish dish and went for something saltier.

I adjusted the stock levels and it was fine.

It seems no one buys the brined stuff. It was 88% off when I went looking yesterday.
