Chicken breasts marinated in leftover pickle juice! Grilled and served with crispy roasted garlic fries and a spicy pickle dip made with Greek yogurt. A delicious and healthy 30-minute meal! (Active time is 30 minutes. You'll need to marinate your chicken ahead of time)
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 jar of garlic dill pickles (I go for the sandwich slices to top each piece of chicken with - see note)
  • 4 medium baking potatoes, scrubbed and sliced relatively thin - like steak fries
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped garlic dill pickles
  • ¼ cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon sriracha sauce
  • salt to taste
  1. Up to 24 hours ahead of time (but at least an hour) place the chicken in a shallow dish and pour the pickle juice over it. Cover tightly and refrigerate until you re ready to cook.
  2. Preheat the oven to 450°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil. Lightly spray with non-stick cooking spray. Lay the potatoes out in a single layer. Sprinkle them with the salt and garlic. Bake the potatoes for 25 minutes, turning them over on the tray halfway through.
  3. While the potatoes bake, heat your grill. You could also utilize a stovetop grill pan.
  4. To make the Spicy Pickle Dip, mix together the chopped pickles, Greek yogurt, sriracha, and salt.
  5. Grill your chicken. I usually opt for thinner chicken breasts and 4-5 minutes on each side will cook them through (grill temperature should be 350°-400°F). Make sure you either check the chicken with an instant read thermometer for an internal temperature of 165°F OR slice into the thickest part of the meat and check that the juices are clear and there's no pink.
  6. Serve the chicken with a pickle slice on top (optional) , with a handful of the Garlic Fries and a side of Spicy Pickle Dip!
1. You don't actually need a whole jar of pickles. You only need the pickle juice/brine they are in. Topping with pickle slices is great, but it's optional
