Coffee- Marinated Chicken with Blueberry Sauce

This week, the Chef made a deliciously healthy meal. Coffee marinated chicken with blueberry sauce and a side of fresh snap peas. I loved taking it as left overs to work this week. The flavor of the blueberry sauce was amazing, and we'll definitely be keeping this recipe for further suppers. 

Ingredients: (from eMeals) serves 2
1 Tbs olive oil
2 tsp honey, divided
1 1/4 tsp smoked paprika, divided
1 tsp instant coffee (decaf)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 cup fresh blueberries
1 Tbs balsamic vinegar

Whisk together 1 Tbs water, olive oil, 1 tsp honey, 1 tsp paprika, coffee powder, 1/4 tsp salt and pepper in a small bowl; rub over chicken. Marinate chicken in refrigerator 30min-2hrs.

Grill or cook chicken on stove top: medium-high heat for 5-6mins per side or until done. Meanwhile combine blueberries, vinegar, honey, paprika, salt in a saucepan and cook over medium heat for 6-8mins. Serve blueberry sauce over chicken.

1 Tbs olive oil
8 oz package steam-in-bag snow peas
1 clove garlic, minced
2 Tbs sliced almonds toasted
1 1/2 tsp lemon juice
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper

Heat olive oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat: add snow peas and garlic; saute 5mins or until tender. Stir in almonds lemon juice salt and pepper, tossing to coat.

Are you wondering what eMeals is? It's a company that offers a wide variety of meal plans that you can choose from and once you've chosen they send you 7 meals recipes including the grocery list. We absolutely love eMeals because it's decreased our grocery bill, time spend searching Pinterest for dinner ideas, and helped us eat healthier. I highly recommend checking them out.

I was compensated for this post in the form of a subscription; however, all of the ideas and thoughts are my own. The Chef and I love this company and their meal plans.
