I strive to find ways to cook flavorful food with minimal calories. It’s what I do. Often this requires me to work outside of the culinary box (anyone can add in a stick of butter and make something delicious). Recently, I’ve been experimenting with coffee; full flavor, low guilt. Even more recently, I tried some of the best coffee I’ve ever had here in town at Black Owl cafe. The coffee, supplied by the aptly named Kalamazoo Coffee Company, had remarkable depth and flavor, lending the sort of experience one would have at a wine tasting, not from a cup of coffee.
So, naturally, I immediately went home and made barbecue sauce. With full honesty, this Chipotle Coffee Chicken is now in my top 5, and I promise it will be in yours too. Let’s cook.
