how much oil?
I am wondering if you can use a different protein prefer other than whey, as I can’t tolerate it. Soy or vegetable/pea protein? Thank you
I’m not understanding the pickle jar marinade. Do you marinade the chicken in pickle juice? Thanks!
Exactly, I was wondering the same thing 🙄
I’m sure she is meaning on marinating the chicken in pickle juice. No pickles needed! 😂
I don’t know about that…and who keeps protein powder around?
Dill pickle juice or sweet
