This is a real doozy of a recipe. It seems like it is a simple Asian inspired chicken dish and then when you are not expecting it they throw in dill pickles! Yes you read that right- dill pickles. I can't think of why anyone would think of doing that. I know vinegar and soy sauce is used in Adobo but there is no dill in that. I found this in a Woman's Day Special Issue- Simply Delicious Meals In Minutes from 1981.
2-1/2 to 3 pounds broiler-fryer pieces
1 chicken bouillon cube
2/3 cups hot water
2 teaspoons soy sauce
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 small onion, cut into rings
1/4 cup sliced celery
1 can (16 oz.) bean sprouts, drained
1/2 green pepper, cut into strips
6 tablespoons dill pickle liquid (drained from dill pickles)
1/2 cup sliced dill pickles
Place chicken on broiler rack about 3 to 4 inches from source of heat. Brush chicken with 1 tablespoon dill pickle liquid and broil until chicken is brown. Turn chicken over, brush again with 1 tablespoon of pickle liquid and broil until chicken is brown. Transfer chicken to a baking dish. Dissolve bouillon cube in water and combine with 1/4 cup pickle liquid, soy sauce and seasonings; pour over chicken. Add dill pickles to baking dish and bake in 325 degree oven 25 minutes. Add the remaining vegetables to baking dish and continue baking for about 15 minutes or until chicken is tender. Makes 4 servings.
