PREPARATION
Cut the chicken into bitesize square pieces or into strips
Place the chicken in a bowl. Add the coffee and pink peppercorns , then leave to marinate in the fridge for 12 hours, so that it will absorb the juices and flavours.
Chop celery , carrots and onions and stir fry them lightly in a pan using a drizzle of oil.
Once the vegetables are nearly cooked, add the marinated chicken in together with half the remaining liquid from the marinate. Cover with the lid and cook over medium heat for 10 minutes. Remove the lid and continue to cook for a few minutes, until the sauce becomes creamy.
Serve the chicken with the coffee sauce and a sprinkle of sesame seeds on top. Eat it whilst still hot.
4. SUGGESTIONS For the preparation of this recipe it is recommended to use the ground coffee and not an instant coffee as the latter is not pure coffee. If you prefer a recipe with a strong taste, we suggest you use the Sublime Rosso Napoli blend , with a strong intense flavour. If, on the other hand, you prefer chicken to keep a delicate taste, use our Sublime Blu Venezia blend , which is softer and sweeter. For lovers of exotic flavors we recommend flavoring the coffee with a cinnamon stick or cardamom powder. Avoid using whole chicken breasts which are not really suitable for this recipe's preparation. In addition to chicken breast, you can also use chicken drumsticks or chicken wings : the latter two options can be prepared for a more informal dinner or snack, as can be eaten without using cutlery.
Accompany this chicken marinated in coffee recipe with either classic baked or mash potatoes , with a side of stir fried seasonal vegetables or basmati rice which could be mixed with the coffee sauce that drips from the chicken. If you don't have any ground coffee available, you can alternatively use an espresso coffee made by your home coffee machine such as a Dolce Gusto , Nespresso , Lavazza A Modo Mio and Lavazza Point systems or an ESE44 compostable paper filter pod. Storage You can store the chicken with coffee in the fridge for a maximum of 1 day and must be placed in an airtight container.
