Most Unappetizing Meal EVER

Roast chicken is a meal that I make often, especially on Friday night for Shabbos. I try to vary the spices/marinate/sauce just to keep things interesting and I’m always on the lookout for new recipes.

One version I will not be making anytime soon—as in, not ever!—would be chicken and pickles. Seriously, this has to be a joke? Or maybe a pregnancy craving? Whichever, it looks downright revolting to me. I shared it on social media and the feedback has ranged from “Nasty” to “Must be a Duggar dish,” which I found truly hilarious. (Duggar fans know that they’re obsessed with pickles, but I doubt even they’d eat such slop.)


If anyone has ever eaten chicken and pickles in real life, please share. I am dying to know what it’s like and where it originates.

    It does look very yucky. However, chopped pickles do taste good in chicken salad. So it could all be chopped up and add mayo and it would probably taste good.

    Ewww, I have never heard of this dish. I know people put pickles on chicken sandwiches, but this just seems weird to me.

    I loved reading your post made me laugh. But I think I would actually like to taste this dish I love chicken and pickles and wonder how this would taste.

    No, I don’t think I would like that at all. It does look rather nasty.
    I do like sweet bread and butter pickles on a lunch meat sandwich.
