Brown leaves on half of boxwood

Over the winter some type of "de-icing" product was shoveled on top of one side of my 10yr old boxwood. That side has leaves that have turned light brown and are falling off. The other side that was untouched is healthy and has new growth on it. It appears that there are some green leaves (very few) towards the center of the plant. Will I be able to save it? If so, how do you recommend I proceed - Food, pruning, etc?

All you can do at this point is to prune away all the dead and see what happens. If the plant is healthy it will eventually regrow into the dead area. I might give them a little slow-release granular fertilizer, but otherwise, I'd prune them and hope for the best."
