Kahlua Chicken is a simple grilled chicken using Kahlua coffee liqueur and boneless, skinless chicken breasts. It’s fantastic if it’s marinated, but also great if just brushed on before and during grilling.
It’s Kahlua Chicken.
Everybody’s favorite poultry gets to have a little booze.
What is Kahlua Chicken?
I have this big bottle of Kahlua that I bought in Mexico a while back, and since I’m not a huge fan of candy-sweet cocktails, I’ve tried to make use of it in other ways.
With its milky texture and unique coffee and rum flavor, Kahlua seems a likely candidate to flavor chicken.
So, since I see it sitting in the cabinet all lonely, I decided to find a way to incorporate it into a recipe or two.
This is the first one.
As you can see I like mine with some very nice grill marks.
Next time I’ll be using this marinade on some broccoli; it’s that good.
I have a feeling this would be great with grilled pineapple on top and served alongside couscous.
Other Ways to Serve Kahlua Chicken –
- With wild rice and roasted brussels sprouts
- On whipped cauliflower with grilled asparagus
- Sliced over a big green salad with feta cheese and Raspberry Vinaigrette
- Sliced and wrapped in a tortilla with avocado ranch and arugula
