  • 3 Tbsp. water
  • 2 Tbsp. orange juice
  • 2 Tbsp. Choice of seasoning:
  • Bakers Brew Coffee Spice

Fantastic flavor! I used the Bakers Brew Coffee Spice and served the chicken with Farro and crusty bread. I ate the leftovers for days it was so good! I also had some chicken on salad greens...Will definitely make again!

This is a go to recipe for me and my husband. Just love it and so easy. We have tried it with both Baker's Brew and Black Dust.

This hit the spot. My 9 year old is picky when it comes to protein. She loved this chicken. And my whole family requested that I make again.

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.
