Number of Servings: 3


    2 Tbsp loose orange pekoe tea or 6 teabags
    2 Tbsp Imitiation Sugar-Free Honey (found at some Target stores)
    1 lemon, juice and pared zest
    Boneless skinless chicken breasts
    Salt and peper to taste


Pour 2 cups boiling water over loose orange pekoe tea or tea bags.

Stir in honey with pared zest and lemon juice. Simmer 3 minutes, stirring just until honey melts. Leave to infuse and cool.

Lay two boneless, skinless chicken breasts in a frying pan and strain tea mixture over. Add salt and pepper to taste. Cover, bring to boil and poach just below boiling on top of the stove, turning once, 20 to 30 minutes. 

Remove chicken breasts when very tender if pierced with a two-pronged fork. Turn heat to high and boil cooking liquid until reduced and starting to caramelize. Replace chicken breasts and continue cooking, turning them so they become golden brown and coated with sauce, 2 to 3 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature, slicing to show the white meat inside. 

Makes 2-4 servings.

Number of Servings: 3
