Chicken Breasts with Coffee Sauce

Preparation time: 10 minutes – Cooking time: 30 minutes – Serving: 4 people


  • 1-1/2 lb Chicken Breasts
  • 1 cup  Espresso Romano Coffee
  • 2 tbsps Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1/2 tbsp Vinegar
  • 1 tsp Sugar (white)
  • Hot Habanero Peppers (to your taste)
  • 1-1/2 oz Unsalted Butter
  • Salt (to your taste)



Melt the butter in a large pan and add the chicken breasts.

Cook briefly the meat until the exterior appears brownish.

In a small cup mix the Espresso Romano coffee, sugar, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar salt and hot habanero pepper.

Add the sauce to the chicken breasts, cover the pan and cook thoroughly at medium to low heat for about 15-20 minutes or until ready. Adjust the thickness of the sauce to your preference by adding some water if needed.

Serve the Chicken Breasts with Coffee Sauce covered in their own sauce.

The best results can be obtained using Espresso Romano coffee but a strong regular coffee, like Perle Noire, Reveil Matin or Costa Rica can give you great results. Just put a cup of water in your coffee machine with 3-4 spoons of your coffee.

Instead of chicken breasts you can use any other cut of chicken, like Chicken tights or other white meat such as turkey.
