Crispy Thai Baked Chicken Recipe: A Flavor-to-the-Bone Chicken Dinner

Ever since reading about using tea bags to infuse grains, I've been intrigued about cooking with tea. When I saw this Thai tea chicken recipe, I knew I had to try it. I changed the baked chicken recipe up a bit by using chicken pieces instead of a whole chicken, and adding parsley flakes and olive oil before cooking. The tea concentrate penetrates the chicken and gives it flavor to the bone. Really good! 

For this easy Thai baked chicken recipe you'll need bone-in chicken pieces, Thai tea concentrate, olive oil and dried parsley flakes. If you can't find Thai tea concentrate, you could use chai tea or any tea with warm spices. Allow time to marinate the chicken for this recipe. I marinated my chicken overnight, which gave it so much flavor and kept it moist and juicy. 

Serve this Thai baked chicken recipe with your favorite side dishes. I served it with cabbage curry (delicious!) and jasmine rice. 

Cuisine: Thai / American
Prep Time: 4 to 24 hours
Cook Time: 30 to 45 minutes
Total Time: 4 hours and 45 minutes
Servings: 2 to 4


  • 6 - 8 bone-in chicken pieces (I used legs)
  • 1 - 2 cups Thai tea concentrate or chai tea concentrate (I used Thaiwala)
  • olive oil
  • dried parsley flakes

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Put the chicken into a bowl or plastic zipper bag. Pour the tea concentrate over just to cover. Let the chicken marinate in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours and up to overnight. (I marinated mine overnight.) Remove the chicken from the marinade and put it onto an aluminum foil-lined baking sheet.
  2. Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with parsley flakes and season with salt, to taste.
  3. Bake in a preheated 375-degree F oven until crispy and cooked through, about 30 to 45 minutes depending on chicken pieces used. (Internal temperature should be at 165 degrees F.)
