The recipe for Chicken with coffee


Coffee recipes continue and become more and more extreme: today it's the turn of chicken with coffee!

No, I'm not crazy, and yes, trust me once again!

On the other hand, daring is fun and trying unique dishes with particular flavors is an excellent pastime, which gives satisfaction.

Overall, it is a simple but tasty main course, with original combinations.

In fact, with a few simple ingredients you will be able to satisfy even the most demanding palates.

But let's get to us.

The ingredients are:

  • 500 gr of chicken
  • 120 ml of coffee extracted with the mocha
  • q.b. of pepper
  • q.b. of salt
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 celery
  • 1 spring onion


If you want to succeed in this recipe at your best, I suggest you start the night before, as the more the chicken is able to marinate in coffee, the more aromas it will absorb and the tastier it will be.

First, then cut the chicken into slices, put it in a bowl and pour over the coffee and pepper in abundance. Mix everything and let it rest overnight.

For this recipe I suggest you use a more fragrant and delicate coffee, so as not to make everything excessively bitter and therefore unpleasant.

In the case of Ernani blends I would recommend Allegro, intensely aromatic, with a slight acidity, balanced by a delicate bitterness. FIND OUT MORE

Meanwhile, finely chop the carrot, celery and spring onion.

After that, heat a pan, preferably wok, on the fire with a drizzle of oil and fry the chopped just obtained.

Let it dry well, until it becomes translucent.

At this point pour the chicken with all its mixture, season with salt and cook over medium heat for 10 minutes, with the lid on.

Now remove the lid and cook for another 2 minutes, just long enough to evaporate a part of the liquid and let the sauce thicken well.

You just have to serve as you prefer! Unleash your creative flair!
