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

- 1 (5 to 6 pounds) roasting chicken
- kosher salt
