Finding uses for those jars of whey…

I’m still trying to use up all the leftover whey from my cheesemaking adventures. Last night I decided to try it as the base of a chicken marinade. Amazing results! I was very happy with how well the flavor of the marinade got into the chicken. This cooked chicken would be a wonderful flavor in a chicken salad!


Whey Marinade with Curry, Cumin, and Turmeric

Ingredients:

  • 1 qt jar of whey
  • 2 tsp curry powder
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 4-6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • Black pepper, to taste

Directions:

  1. Wash chicken breasts in cold water, pat dry.
  2. In a small bowl or a large measuring cup, combine the whey and spices.
  3. Place chicken in a resealable container or freezer bag.
  4. Pour marinade over chicken until covered.
  5. Marinate 12-24 hours under refrigeration.
  6. When ready to cook chicken, preheat oven to 350F.
  7. Place cutlets in glass/ceramic baking dish.
  8. Bake 30-35 mins.
