Olive Brine Is The Key To Juicy And Tangy Chicken
Leftover olive brine is the key to creating juicy, tangy chicken. Sweet, salty, and more sophisticated than pickle juice brine, the acidity of olive brine tenderizes the chicken.
Pour the olive brine into a bowl and submerge the chicken in it. Leave it in the fridge overnight or for at least a few hours, then drain the olive brine and season the chicken.
Different olives impart different flavors, so choose the brine based on what you’re making the chicken with. No matter what type you use, it will hit the marks of salty water.
