Juicy Thai Tea Chicken Recipe: This Whole Roasted Chicken Recipe Is a Taste of Thailand

If you haven’t been to Thailand but enjoy Thai food, you’ve likely seen Thai iced tea at some point. The beverage is famous for its vibrant orange hue. It’s sweet, yet holds the subdued qualities of the pandan leaf, which is slow brewed before the milk and sugars are added. When you marinate chicken in Thai tea, the result is out of this world.

This easy Thai tea roasted chicken recipe is moist, tender and juicy. Be sure to allow at least 30 minutes to marinate the chicken for best results. Serve with your favorite side dishes.

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Remove the chicken giblets. Rinse the chicken inside and out. Remove any excess fat and leftover pin feathers and pat the outside dry. Marinate the bird in Thaiwala, being sure to coat the cavity for at least 30 minutes. Liberally salt and pepper the inside of the chicken.
  2. Roast the chicken in a preheated 425-degree F oven for 1 1/2 hours, or until the juices run clear when you cut between a leg and thigh. Remove the chicken cover with aluminum foil for about 20 minutes. Slice the chicken onto a platter and serve.
