This recipe has you cook the chicken in the pickle juice so the chicken has good flavor! If you prefer less spicy, use the regular Bread & Butter Pickles. The name caught my attention while searching for a Hot Cherry Pepper canning recipe on www.ilovepickles.com . NOTE: This is delicious. I could not find Spicy Bread & Butter Pickles so I used the the no-sugar regular variety and added a few drops of hot sauce. I substituted chopped zucchini for the celery. If you prefer Miracle Whip over mayo, that would be fine.
