Recipe Ingredient

  • 4 chicken breasts
  • Sourdough bread sliced and lightly toasted
  • Arugula leaves rocket
  • Dry rub
  • 1/4 cup ground coffee beans
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp chilli powder
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 tbsp lime juice fresh
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • Cheese spread
  • 100 g goat cheese
  • 4 dates pitted, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp lime zest finely grated
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp chilli flakes

  1. In a medium bowl, mix all the ingredients for the rub until it becomes a paste. Take each chicken breast and coat with the coffee marinade.

Preheat oven to 180°C and roast chicken in a tray lined with aluminium foil, uncovered, for 15 minutes.
  2. For the cheese spread: mash the goat cheese in another bowl and fold in the remaining ingredients until it resembles a spread.
  3. To assemble the sandwich: Place the arugula leaves on one side of the bread. Spread the cheese and arrange the roasted chicken and serve. You can even add sliced tomatoes.
