Springdrop Spritzer Chicken

Piper and Leaf green tea chicken rub springdrop spritzer new year recipe

Ingredients: 

  • ½ tsp salt 
  • 1 tsp garlic powder 
  • 3 tsp Springdrop Spritzer loose leaf 
  • 4 chicken breasts 
  • Olive oil 
  • Optional: 1 lemon 

Steps: 

  1. Mix salt, garlic powder, and Springdrop Spritzer loose leaf in a small bowl. For best results, grind the loose leaf with a mortar and pestle before mixing! 
  2. Coat the chicken breasts in a thin layer of olive oil. Sprinkle the tea & spice mixture onto the chicken and rub it into both sides until all the chicken breasts are evenly covered 
  3. Pour a thin coating of olive oil into a pan and put it on the stove over medium heat. I recommend using a cast-iron skillet! Grill the chicken on both sides until it’s completely cooked through (165 degrees in the middle) 
  4. Once it’s finished, plate and serve. Optionally, zest a lemon over the chicken breasts for a little citrus kick!
