Spicy Coffee Rubbed Chicken

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. 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?
