Prepare it as a delicious dish for a dinner with family or friends; with a few simple ingredients, you will be able to satisfy even the most demanding palates with a simple and tasty gourmet dish. Making it is very simple: you just have to marinate the chicken in the coffee the night before preparation and then cook it in a pan with sauteed vegetables and spices. So let’s see all the steps to prepare it.

How to prepare chicken with coffee

Prepare the chicken breast (1). Cut it into pieces or into strips (2) and put it in a bowl. Add the coffee and the pink peppercorns, then let marinate for 12 hours, so as to flavor it well (3). Chop spring onion, celery and carrot.

Brown everything in a pan with a drizzle of oil (4). Add the chicken with half the marinade liquid. Cover with the lid and cook over medium heat for about 10 minutes. Lift the lid, continuing to cook for a few minutes, until the sauce has reduced (5). Serve the chicken with the coffee sauce and a sprinkling of sesame seeds. Enjoy it immediately, hot (6).


To prepare this recipe avoid instant coffee and prepare it with moka pot, if possible. Those who prefer can also flavor the coffee with cinnamon sticks or cardamom.

In addition to the chicken breast, you can also use the chicken wings that are very suitable for an informal dinner, as you can also eat them with your hands. Instead, avoid whole chicken breasts that are not very suitable for this preparation.

Accompany the chicken with coffee with classic baked potatoes, steamed seasonal vegetables or basmati rice that you can dip in the coffee sauce.


You can preserve the chicken with coffee in the refrigerator for 1 day in an airtight container.
