If you love pickles you will love this. Chicken thighs are browned and cooked with potatoes, carrots, pickles and black olives. Sounds scary I know but trust me it's good. My mother-in-law served this to me when I first met my husband and I have come to love it.

Directions

  • Place the flour in a shallow dish and season lightly with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Season the chicken thighs with salt and pepper, and dredge in the flour.

Pour in the chicken broth.

  • Stir in the potatoes, pickles, carrots, black olives with juice, and pickle juice. Reduce heat to medium, cover, and cook until the potatoes are tender and the chicken thighs are no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, about 40 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

This was fun and unusual for sure. The carrots soaked in dill juice were good by themselves but I thought they were out of place with the rest of the dish. I'm a huge dill pickle and olive lover but even this was a bit much overall dill flavor for me. I honestly think this would be better if chicken breast were used instead and slightly blackened on the grill sliced and put in the dish in the end instead of browning them just to soggy them up with the liquid but that is just my two cents. Again this was fun and it wasn't horrible but just something I probably wouldn't make again. Read More

My family renamed this "Weird Chicken". It was bland strange combination of flavors and I won't make it again. Read More

I LOVE this recipe! It's a strange combination of ingredients but it tastes so good. I use bread and butter pickles and frozen sliced carrots. I've even made it without the potatoes and served it with rice. So yummy! Read More
