Chai Chicken

Chai Tea is my daily staple and  more like a ritual I make it pretty simple just adding almond milk to the tea.

Chai is the Hindi word for tea. Masala chai, what we know as “chai” is a tea drink of that is brewed in milk with a variety of spices. You can buy chai tea bags or make it yourself by putting shredded ginger, cinnamon powder and ground cardamom seeds in a pot with 2 cups of water, bringing it to a boil. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes to bring out the flavor of the spices, then add tea and stir.
