I know “pickled chicken” sounds weird, but trust me when I say that these Pickled Chicken Sandwiches will knock your socks off. Served up on a lettuce wrap with all your favorite chicken sandwich toppings (or even just some pickles and a mayo substitute while you’re on the autoimmune protocol), they make for a fun and satisfying meal reminiscent of the fast-food chicken sandwiches you might have indulged in in the past. If you want a meal with slightly fewer dishes to clean up afterward, or just don’t like breaded chicken, skip the breading and grill the meat instead.
