It's not the chicken that's the problem. It's the area in which you gave your chicken a salt-water "bath". It's the area in which you did this washing that is the issue. If that is what you want to do then do it. I choose not to do it and others choose not to do it. The only thing I do is take a wad of paper towels and dry my chicken inside and out. I then immediately sanitize my sink or cutting board - wherever that chicken was sitting.
It's not going to be solved here and I don't think it will ever be solved. Everyone will do what they want in the end because that's what they were told to do or that's just how they grew up doing it. Just know that when you wash your chicken and that water is splashing you MUST thoroughly clean the area in and around. It appears that some of you already do that - that's the responsible thing to do.
