It’s easy to see why their slogan is “Eat mor chikin” when it’s as juicy as their patties. So why does the chicken breast we make at home pale in comparison to this chicken chain’s poultry? A very special secret ingredient that’s probably already hiding in your fridge.
You saved that jar of pickle juice in the back of your fridge on purpose, right? Right! Put it to good use as brine for your chicken breasts. This cut of meat, because it’s so lean, dries out very easily. Brining it in pickle juice, because it’s a salt and water mixture, keeps the meat tender and encourages it to draw in water, ensuring juicy chicken when you're done cooking.
Even better: you can cook the chicken any way you like after the brine treatment. Chick-fil-A sends theirs through the deep fryer, but you can roast or grill yours and get the same irresistible result--chicken that’s bursting with flavor and anything but boring.
