I have been marinating chicken breasts in leftover pickle juice for years... Ever since my I met my BF and there was always sooo many pickles in the house! I like to pound the chicken breasts flat and cut them in half (if they are on the larger size) and then marinate overnight. We love to grill them to give them some chargrilled flavor and serve them on buttered buns with a pickle slice or two... tastes just like Chick Fil A to us! Thanks for sharing this gem of a recipe!!!

So wonderful and easy and I thought it had great pickle flavour after marinating for about 5 hours. Can't wait to leave it overnight!

Awesome! You cannot get any easier than this and the flavour is fantastic! Definitely a dill pickle flavour but not too tangy!

This was good. Since others said the pickle flavor wasn't very strong and I love pickles I divided it and sprinkled half with dill weed after it marinated. It was better with the dill weed, but my family was kind of divided too. They said it was okay, and they would eat it again if I made it but wouldn't ask for it. I love pickles so they may have to eat it again. LOL It does make a nice chicken sandwich. I think it would be better over a charcol grill.

This is great. As the BF and I were eating he asked what I Marinated this is in.. When i told him he was suprised, he thought it was lemon. ... it does turn the edges of the chicken a greenish/yellow color but its soooo good.

I enjoyed this. Like other reviewers, I was hoping for a more "pickley" flavor, but definitely still liked the flavor that was there and loved how tender the chicken was. I had this with some easy oven polenta, Soft Oven Polenta. Great comfort food. Thanks for posting!
