This tea and honey chicken recipe was one of the first recipes I made when I first moved out when I was 17. My poor husband had this many times a week back in the day. Don’t get me wrong it’s delicious, but eating anything multiple times a week can get a little old.

I went from cooking this multiple times a week to almost never. Sometimes, it’s nice to go back to old blog posts to remember recipes. I’m adding this back on the meal plan.

  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
