Whey-Brined Chicken with Avocado, Beets, Quinoa, and Greens

Straining yogurt is a two-for-one way to get both a tenderizing brining liquid with whey and a thick strained yogurt called labneh. Labneh can be used in dips and dressings, instead of your morning Greek yogurt, in place of cream cheese in desserts, and more.

Tips

  • Extra whey and labneh can be kept in airtight container in refrigerator until yogurt’s expiry date.
  • Use the salty, watery brine from feta cheese in place of the yogurt’s whey for a speedier alternative (skip the salt in this case).
