Coffee Chicken from Kenya


Some food memories stay with a longer than others. This is one such. And I promise, you invite guests on it, so they can never guess what you spiced up with. And they will ask for the recipe before they go home.
Chicken and coffee match very well together. This time I added beans and that became very, very good combination.
Remember when I heard about Facebook for the first time. It was my kids who thought I should get it. Said and done, I did so many years ago. There I shared with you everything possible, including this recipe. I also have a very good friend, Ute, with my FB. How she came with I do not know, because I’ve never met her. But she is there and is always happy and caring. Although they never met. One day I hope she’ll find her way here. This recipe I dedicate to her and her family. Apparently, loves her family the very much, which makes me so happy to hear that.

      Actually coffee is a great spice to use to make a great tast on stews and meat. Take a look here on my blog you find me using lot of coffee with meat and chicken. Its great! 🙂

  2. Just above ‘200 ml water’ there’s “1 sliced” but no indication of what it is that’s sliced. I’d love to try this one… is it zucchini?
