  1. Sweet pickle juice or Dill pickle juice?

  2. What kind of pickle juice do you use for the chicken

  3. It’s probably not sweet pickle juice, just my guess

  4. Thank you for the recipe. My family loved it. Marinating the chicken in dill pickle juice for an hour made all the difference. I added some garlic powder and parmesan cheese for additional flavor.

  5. Has anyone made these. Can’t wait to try. Thank you for this luscious post
