Tea-soaked Chicken Breasts by Rachel Ray

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!

Chai Green Tea Latte

There's just something soothing about how a spiced chai latte tastes on a cold day...or any day if you're like meI love chai spices - the cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, cloves...and all chai teas for that matter. But green tea blended with chai spices in this Green Chai Tea Latte recipe is just delicious with the earthiness of green tea contrasted by the chai spices in a frothy cup. It works.

Masala Chai
Hi Mary Lou, We're disappointed you weren't thrilled with our Masala Chai. It has very similar ingredients to Oprah Chai, but if you are looking for more cinnamon and a bit more sweetness, you should try our Maharaja Chai Oolong. While it is an Oolong tea instead of a black tea, it does have a higher caffeine level like a black tea, and it has all the other ingredients of the Oprah Chai: Spicy Cinnamon, Ginger, Cocoa Nibs, Black Peppercorn, Chicory, Cardamom, Cloves. The Masala Chai does not have the cocoa nibs that give it the sweetness I think you may be missing. We will send you a sample!

Hi Jerry - If you're looking for more of a chai flavor, try blending the White Ayurvedic Chai with our Samurai Spirit Chai Maté - a very popular blend! (https://tealeavz.com/products/samurai-chai-mate)
