"The richness of the coffee really makes the chicken spectacular. It's moist and reminiscent of slow cooked barbecue."
This is a Door County Coffee Fan recipe. It was not made in the kitchens of the Door County Coffee Café.
Featured ingredient: French Roast Coffee 10 oz. Bag Ground
- 1 / 3 cup Door County French Roast coffee, pulsed fine in a coffee mill
- 1 / 2 cup brown sugar

- 1 / 4 cup brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

- Combine all ingredients (except chicken) and mix well.
- Cover the chicken all over with the dry rub; lifting up skin to coat the meat. Cover and marinate for at least an hour or overnight.
- Heat grill or oven to 350 degrees. Place chicken directly on grill grates or on a rack atop a baking sheet. Cook for 20 - 30 minutes until golden brown and a thermometer inserted into the thigh reads 165 degrees. Serve with sauce.
- Meanwhile, make the sauce. In a medium sauce pan, whisk together all of the sauce ingredients and simmer until coffee is dissolved. Refrigerate until ready to use.
