Now this is some very good chicken! I used skinless thighs (bone-in), and I don't keep sherry wine in the house so I just adjusted the coffee amount to 1/2 cup. This came out excellent, the flavor is just WOW! We liked it very much and I will definately be making this again. Made for Comfort Cafe Summer 09.
