    Cointreau and coffee as a marinate for the chicken — what a great and exciting combination of flavors, Purabi! I wish I could try this dish.

      Denise, this chicken was so so good…my kids couldn’t stop licking the last drop of gravy you know. It was a great hit with the biggies in my family as well!

      Thank you, John. My family loved this. I am going to try this recipe once again this weekend, but with goat meat (mutton). Wish you a fabulous week ahead!

    I am dying to taste this dish. I love everything about it. I close my eyes and I can imagine the taste and texture on my tongue. I know, I’m weird but don’t all food lovers do that? 🙂

    ok now this is a very unusual flavor combination for a chicken curry lol but I ll tell you, just like Maureen, I need to give it a shot asap! Smart to add cointreau, I can imagine that it must give the dish another flavor punch.

      Helene, Cointreau and coffee were complementing each other so much in this dish. I am sure you will love this “new” kind of recipe. Cheers!

    Purabi, I loved everything about this post — the story behind your inventiveness, your family’s assessment of it, the clear photos and step-by-step explanations, and most of all, the prospect of Coffee Cointreau Chicken. I agree with Maureen’s comment, too. 🙂 Happy New Year!

    Instant coffee powder in it? That’s really unique! The flavor and the smell must be amazing. I have cointreau from making ice cream and I haven’t found any use of it. Having chicken sounds amazing, especially with this interesting combination! Thank you Purabi!

    That’s a wonderful, very creative and elegant dish.
    I’m sure the flavor of coffee and the range aroma of Cointreau are a match made in heaven.
    Your little princess is so cute, Purabi!

    Hello! I just wanted to cook something with chicken and coffee…was googling and came across your blog. I really liked the recipe and will definitely try it. But I don’t want to use the Cointreau, so could you suggest anything to replace it?

      Hi Suparna. Thanks, do let me know how was it. You can use a mixture of white wine and orange juice instead of Cointreau. Or, just use orange juice.
