This satisfying chicken dish from Justin Chapple calls for just five ingredients. One of them is chai tea, which is mixed into a paste with oil and spread under the chicken skin to flavor the meat as it roasts. Plus: More Chicken Recipes

How to Make It


Preheat the oven to 450°. In a bowl, whisk the oil with the tea, salt and pepper. Rub the chai mixture all over the chicken breast halves and under the skin. Set the chicken skin side up on a large rimmed baking sheet and roast for about 30 minutes, until browned and an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part of each breast registers 160°. Let rest for 10 minutes, 
then transfer to a platter. Scatter the cilantro on top and serve with lime wedges.

Suggested Pairing

Chardonnay that’s aged in a little oak often has a spice note that complements the chai in this dish.
