  1. We have a lot of chicken in our home, don’t really know why but guess its easy and can make it so many different ways.! This took my eye and so thought I’d pin this to try for later. Quite a different way than I would have thought of especially with tea!! This will be my next chicken fix.

  2. I’m always on the look out for chicken recipes. Thanks for sharing at the Monday Funday Link Party. – Emily
