Yesterday I prepared my Coffee Chicken recipe on WFMZ Channel 69 during the Easy Eats cooking segments. I created this recipe about 15 years ago (or more) because I am a thrifty Greek who loves to experiment in the kitchen. The recipe has three main ingredients, chicken, buttermilk and yep, coffee. You can use chicken thighs (as I show here) or breasts; either way however, you want to use bone in, skin on chicken and adjust the time in the oven accordingly. On average the recipe takes 10 minutes to prepare, an hour or so to marinade and about that much time to cook. If you are pressed for time, give each piece of chicken a good poke with a fork and before placing it in the resealable bag with the marinade and this will speed things up a bit. Easy Breezy!
What makes Coffee Chicken fun and different is the fact coffee imparts a smoky flavor while the buttermilk tenderizes. The chicken comes out juicy and tender. I hope you try it!
I share the recipe on my Recipes page.
