A little work but you'll be rewarded with every bite you take of this succulent chicken, highly seasoned and glazed with rum and coffee.

This was fantastic! I cut down the sugar and salt, and added extra virgin olive oil instead of butter to the glaze. (I added the oil after boiling the other ingredients). I served the chicken with some lime wedges, and it was even better with the extra lime juice. I was looking for something different from the same old boring chicken recipes I've been making, and this was it! Thanks so much!!!
