Recipe of the Week: Coffee-Glazed Chicken

This week, for something a little different, we present you: Coffee-glazed chicken!

This is a fairly simple meal to prepare. It is flavorful and hearty, and the longer you marinate the chicken, the better!

1 lb boneless, skinless chicken thighs
5 tbsp water
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp orange peel
1 tbsp ground coffee
1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp cocoa
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground cardamon
1/4 tsp ginger
pinch of nutmeg
pinch of allspice
salt, to taste
scallions/cilantro, chopped (optional)
Mix together all the ingredients, then use to marinate chicken. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
In a saute pan, heat 2 tbsp of olive oil over medium-high heat.
Brown chicken on both sides, with all the marinate in the pan, about 5 mins each side.
Turn heat to low, and reduce liquid to a thick sauce, stirring occasionally.
Stir in scallions or cilantro.

Serve hot over rice.
