• 1 1/2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 3 Tbsp. water
  • 2 Tbsp. orange juice
  • 2 Tbsp. Baker's Brew Coffee Spice
  • 3 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • 4 scallions, 1-inch bias cut


For variety and a more robust, savory flavor, try replacing Baker’s Brew with our Black Dust Coffee & Spice Rub.


Place all ingredients, excluding scallions, in a bowl and mix thoroughly. Cover and marinate in refrigerator for 1 to 4 hours. Heat marinade and chicken in a saute pan over medium-high heat. Brown chicken on one side, 4 to 5 min. Turn and brown the other side. Turn heat to medium-low and reduce the liquid to a thick sauce, 10 to 12 min., stirring occasionally. Stir in scallions and heat for another minute or two. Salt to taste, if necessary.

Delicious and surprisingly sweet chicken. Easy to make and takes minimal time. Will become a favorite for us. Tip: we let it marinade about 2 hours, a longer time probably would make it even better.
Test Kitchen Response: Thanks for taking the time to review this, Margo! We agree that marinating longer is event better.
