Spicy Coffee Rubbed Chicken

Tender, juicy spicy Coffee rubbed Chicken - perfect for guests or to treat your family and so quick & easy to make too !

This spicy Coffee rubbed Chicken is perfect for when you have guests over or want to treat the family to something delicious and a little out of the ordinary.

In the photos I have one chicken breast fillet, all sliced up and served with the trimmings. It may look like you have spent hours in the kitchen, but by now you should know that I am not fond of hanging around the kitchen for too long.

Don't get me wrong here, I love food, cooking and baking, but I have zero patience for long, difficult recipes and that is what With A Blast is about - quick, easy, yet delicious and {mostly!} nutritious meals, whether it be the main meal, dessert or a drink.

Getting back to the Coffee Rubbed Chicken, the meat is super tender and juicy, with the outside slightly crisp and a whole lot of spicy flavor.

Slicing each Chicken Fillet is up to you, I love the way it looks served in slices, with the creamy Avocado and slightly Lime pickled Onions, but you can serve them however you prefer, whole, sliced or cut in half.

I drizzled some of the pan juices over each sliced Fillet just before serving, no need for it to go to waste now, is there ?
