Tea and Honey Chicken
Chicken poached in tea may sound a little odd, but trust me it’s delicious. I’ve made this recipe for Tea and Honey Chicken many times and I usually serve it with penne noodles tossed in a roasted garlic, sun dried tomato and olive oil.

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.
Helpful supplies for this recipe:
- Saute pan
- Orange Pekoe Tea
- Soy Sauce (coconut aminos would be delicious too).

You’re going to love this chicken breast recipe! This tea and honey chicken is tender and full of flavor! Serve it with a side salad, a serving of pasta, or some rice to make it a meal.
Fixers: 1 serving of chicken breast is one red. You don’t have to count the honey on it.
This recipe can be good for up to 6 chicken breasts (I use boneless, skinless).
Another delicious chicken and honey recipe you may like is this Kickin’ Chicken Kebabs with spicy peanut sauce. A wildly popular recipe right now are these Coconut Curry Chicken Meatballs. They don’t have honey in them, but I’m getting so many emails with raving reviews. I’m sure you’ll love them!

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