    I need to know more about the pickle marinade I'm intrigued. So you marinade raw chicken in literally just the pickle juice and then cook it anyway you would normally?

    Seconding this question. Also, how would a person (husband) who dislikes pickles feel about this?

    When I was a kid I'd grab the jar of Chinese 5 Spice and sit there and sniff it. So weird, but I loved it so much.

    I totally get this...the smell is almost as good as the taste. My kitchen smells amazing for hours after I've cooked with it :)

    It doesn't have an overwhelming pickle flavor, but it's there. After I marinate it, I'll add some S&P and grill it naked or dredge it in some flour with other spices (garlic, paprika, etc) and pan fry. Aaannd, now I know what I'm making tonight!

    Penzey's No Salt seasonings are rad. You can search for them under "Salt Free" here.

    I also am a huge fan of Tapatio hot sauce in pretty much any dish that I eat.

    Nandos medium rub seasoning, if in Aus or UK. Bake in the oven for 20mins on 200degree celcius for 20mins, comes out perfect ;)

    Vinegar, salt, Mrs. Dash table blend, onion and herb, or original seasoning.

    Red chili powder, turmeric, cumin, coriander powder with bread crumbs then fry.

    Nuff said! Yum!

    Me too! I took chicken out last night. I hope I have pickle juice.

    Dry rub a packet of taco seasoning on the chicken breasts then grill or bake.

    A generous sprinkle of Old Bay is all I need.

    I use McCormick Grill Mates seasoning marinates. They're great!
    Marinate the meat for 24 to 48 hours.
    My favorites are:
    Mesquite
    Baja Citrus
    Chipotle Pepper
    Mojito Like
    Korean BBQ

    When I'm lazy, I just cook a breast and douse it in Franks Red Hot sauce.

    Chicken is pretty much a blank slate.

    There are hundreds (if not thousands) of different ways to season and prepare it. Just look at all of the different recipes for chicken there are worldwide.

    The choices are endless but, when I'm lazy (which usually is the case), all I do is coat it w/olive oil, season it w/salt, pepper and thyme and then roast or pan fry it til done.

    Simple as it can get.
