Coffee Crusted Roast Chicken Thighs
Ingredients
1 (3- to 4- lb.) package bone-in chicken thighs OR
2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 tbsp. finely ground Raley's French Roast Coffee beans
2 tbsp. brown sugar
2 tbsp. hoisin sauce (in our Asian foods aisle)
1 tbsp. sesame oil (in our Asian foods aisle)
1 1/2 tsp. Chinese five spice powder
Directions

Prep: 15 minutes, Cook: about 30 minutes, Serves: 8

1. Preheat oven to 350°F and spray a 13-by-9-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Rinse thighs and pat dry with paper towels.

2. Combine remaining ingredients in a small bowl and generously coat chicken with mixture on all sides. Bake for 30 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.

Tip: Lightly coat a bag of frozen sweet potato fries with chile powder and salt, then bake in the oven at the same time the chicken is cooking for a delicious side dish.

Wine Suggestion
Sebastiani Merlot - Chicken doesn’t always go with Chard. For this one, the mocha flavors of this Merlot work much better!

I thought this sounded like an intriguing combination of flavors but for some reason when I tried it, the finished product did not live up to my expectations. I expected it to be more saucy and with a stronger coffee flavor. It was just OK.
