Fried Chicken Baked in Dill Pickle Juice

I never knew what to do about all that tasty dill pickle juice after the pickles were gone. I did some searching on the internet and found this. People thought I was nuts, until they tried it. I get frequent requests for this dish now. It has a unique taste that is impossible not to enjoy (if you enjoy dill pickles). It even tastes great cold. Great for a picnic and is what I'll be making for our Canada Day picnic.



  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 broiler-fryer chicken, cut into pieces
  • oil (for frying)
  • dill pickle juice


Dip pieces of chicken in milk and then into the flour mixture.

In a frying pan, cook chicken in oil just long enough to brown the crust. Drain on paper towels.

Place pieces in a 9x13 inch pan or glass casserole dish.

Pour dill pickle juice half way up chicken.

Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees F for 1 1/2 hours, basting occasionally. Turn chicken over after 65 to 70 minutes and continue cooking, uncovered.

The juice will be absorbed.
