How to Make Chicken Marinated in Pickle Juice

Save

Rather than pour out the juice when all the pickles in the jar are gone, use the juice as a marinade. Pickle juice contains vinegar and spices such as dill, celery seed, salt, garlic, peppercorns and mustard seed. The spicy and acidic blend of the juice will give chicken a tangy flavor and help tenderize the meat. Chicken marinated in pickle juice is especially good when cooked on the grill.

Things You'll Need

  • Garlic
  • Cilantro
  • Pickle juice
  • Zip-top bag (1 qt or 1 gal. size)
  • Olive oil
  • Chicken
  • Mince 1 clove of garlic and chop 1/4 cup of cilantro. Put both inside the zip-top bag.

  • Pour 1 cup of pickle juice into the bag along with 1/2 cup of olive oil. Shake to mix with garlic and cilantro.

  • Add 1 lb. of chicken to the bag and seal. Shake the bag to allow the ingredients to mix. Cut up the chicken or leave whole depending on how you want to cook it.

  • Allow the chicken to marinate in the bag for at least one hour. Remove chicken from the bag, shake off the extra marinade and grill.

Tips & Warnings

  • You can prepare the same recipe using a glass baking dish for marinating the chicken instead of a zip-top bag. Turn the chicken several times to coat, and cover the dish with plastic wrap.
