Wake-me-up Chicky!

Stormy Stewart


With all the coffee recipes floating be it inspired me to create a dish also. Since we are big grill fans it needed to be able to convert from grill to stove and back again.

Make your sauce 2 hours ahead to allow the blending to occur.

This sweet yet tangy sensation does it all.Eric never dreamed there was coffee in it.

We served it with grill fried mash potatoes and asparagus with butter garlic sauce
