This chicken breast recipe by Food Wishes on YouTube is made with pickle brine which makes a tender and juicy chicken. If you like pickles, use your pickle brine once you finish eating them in the jar. It would be a great use of pickle brine for recipes like these instead of throwing it out. If you brine your chicken breast, usually it will come out moist and tender. So, it’s important to make brine in general if you want to use something else besides pickle juice. The pickle brine will add an extra tanginess to the chicken breast with the pickle juice’s original flavor and extra seasonings that are added.



  • 2 large boneless skinless chicken breast
  • olive oil to coat
  • salt and pepper to taste

For the brine:

  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • pinch of cayenne
  • 1 1/2 to 2 cups dill pickle juice


First, in a large mixing bowl, mix brown sugar, black pepper, salt, cayenne, and pickle juice. Stir everything together until the sugar and salt have dissolved. Submerge the large boneless skinless chicken breast in the pickle brine. Let it sit in the fridge for a few hours to marinate.

Top the chicken breast with a sauce on top or eat it as is. Add chopped pickles on the side to pair with the pickle flavor from the chicken. You can eat this with a tossed salad or any of your favorite sides. I would choose something light because the pickle brine chicken breasts are simple.
