To brine a chicken you will have to find a recipe for a brine u would like online. Make that brine. Then submerge your chicken into the brine for about 4-6 hrs depending on the size of the piece.

Brine a chicken involves letting it sit for a couple of days in a solution of salt water and herbs. Use about a cup of salt per gallon of water, and add whatever herbs you like.

You brine a chicken by soaking in salt and spices. Often the spices used include bay, rosemary, oregano and others. The solution that you soak it in is very salty.

Basically a brine is like a marinade. However unlike a marinade it mainly consists of water and salt. It's purpose is to add flavor to the chicken as well as keep it moist while it cooks. Look online for different brine to locate one that sounds like something you would like.
