• 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.

“I am gluten-intolerant and very careful about what I purchase to prepare meals with. Many times, seasonings are loaded with wheat or flours as binding agents. I was thrilled to find your seasonings in all of their natural states.”

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.
