Hello guys! Hope you have all are having a great week so far. We wish you an even better weekend coming up.
This week we are on the quiet, serene island of Sao Tomé and Príncipe. It is made up of two archipelagos, Sao Tomé island being the bigger of the two and is located very close to the equator, off the western equatorial coast of Central Africa. To view more of this wonderful island, click here.
We’ll be making a sumptuous delicacy of chicken with coffee sauce from Sao Tome and Principe. A simple ten to fifteen minute dish you can whip up when those unexpected visitors come around or when you feel like making a dish that wouldn’t take three hours to prepare.
Well, chop chop! Get your utensils out and let’s get cooking.
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 15 minutes
6 Skinless chicken breasts
1 tbsp oyster sauce
2 tsps olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tsps barbeque sauce
½ tsp Worcestershire sauce
¼ cup brewed coffee
1 tsp brown sugar
Marinate the chicken with the oyster sauce. Add seasoning for taste.
In a pan, heat the olive oil and fry each side of the chicken until cooked. Ensure chicken is well done on both sides. Set aside to cool off.
Using the same frying pan, fry the garlic then add the barbeque and worcestershire sauces.
Also add the brown sugar and the brewed coffee. Let it simmer for about two minutes.
While it simmers, add the chicken and coat it with the coffee sauce. Let the sauce caramelize over the chicken pieces.
Serve immediately. You can have it with rice or pasta or potatoes.
