tea-soaked grilled chicken

With the little more time we have at home right now, why not try a new recipe with simple ingredients you probably have in your pantry? Here is a delicious way Rachel Ray uses black tea in a chicken recipe:

PREP TIME: 15 min
SERVINGS: 4

Ingredients:

  • 3 teaspoons black tea
  • 2 whole star anise
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 4 6- to 8-ounce skinless, boneless chicken breasts, pounded 1/2 inch thick

Preparation

In a small saucepan, bring 2 cups water to a boil. Add the tea and star anise and steep for 5 minutes, then strain the liquid to remove the tea leaves and star anise. Stir in the soy sauce, brown sugar, vegetable and sesame oils and cinnamon; let cool to room temperature, about 10 minutes.

Place the chicken breasts in a gallon-size resealable plastic bag and pour in the marinade; refrigerate for at least 1 hour or up to 8 hours.

Preheat a grill to medium. Position the chicken on an oiled cooking grate and then grill, uncovered and turning onto each side twice, until cooked through, 10 to 12 minutes.

Thank you for the idea @RachelRay!

Great!

Great!

Refreshing tea

It tastes exactly like Maharaja chai from Teavana. I am glad I gave it a try.

Delicious tea! We were huge Teavana fans, so it was very sad when the stores closed. Now, we are able to buy our favorite flavors again!

Yummy Flavorful Chai

I purchased this to mix into the Masala Chai. It’s quite tasty on its own, but it plays well with other teas. Very pleased.

Delicious Chai

This is the 4th replacement tea we’ve tried since Teavana closed. It’s pretty close to perfect. I also got the White Chai to mix it up. Very pleased.
