Use Pickle Juice To Make The Best Fried Chicken

The Salty Pot recently shared the secret to juicy, fried chicken: Pickle juice. Marinating chicken in pickle juice before breading and frying results in more flavorful, juicy fried chicken.

When it comes to go-to foods, you really can’t beat what fried chicken has to offer. After all, you don’t need much to make it awesome and even small changes can make the meal unique. Perhaps you have a favorite variety or location where you buy chicken, and, if you are anything like me, you enjoy it regularly.

That is where this unique recipe comes in. If you want to have the juiciest chicken consistently, you need to marinate the chicken breasts for up to 12 hours before you fry. The secret isn’t the time, however, it is the pickle juice you will use as a marinade. It adds just the right flavor and is juicy beyond compare.

All of the details in this unique recipe can be found on The Salty Pot.

At this point, you might be wondering if eating this fried chicken is going to be like chomping into a giant pickle. Don’t worry, the pickle juice will add just the right amount of flavor to the recipe.

The easiest way to make this recipe is to buy a jar of pickles and use the pickle juice. For those that feel especially adventurous, you can also make your own pickles. Take one piece of chicken at a time and shake it in a bag with seasoned flour mix. Make sure the chicken is thoroughly coated so the chicken is crispy on the outside. The pickle juice marinade will keep it juicy on the inside.

Each piece of chicken gets fried for about 7 or 8 minutes. Watch that it doesn’t brown too quickly, and if it does, turn down the heat.

Make this fried chicken for the family and watch it do a disappearing act. Make some extra and freeze it for later. Just thaw it and crisp it up in the oven.

Pickle juice chicken, you won’t be sorry.
