Coffee fried chicken is a thing

Nothing fowl about this dish.

 

See what I did there?

Sydney's coolest fried chicken joint Butter is making your tricked out food collab dreams come true by creating a Nespresso coffee-infused menu.

Be went down to the Surry Hills eatery and champagne house (it's also a sneaker store!) to see how head chef Julian Cincotta makes the magic happen.

Julian made us his sweet & sticky coffee-glazed chicken tenders – using Nespresso Rosabaya de Colombia Grand Cru coffee.

First he coats the chicken in Butter's legendary batter recipe, then it gets a hit of the deep fryer for maximum crisp.

A shot of Nespresso coffee is added to caramel to create a hectic glaze.

Add a few secret herbs and spices and then Julian drizzles the glaze over the chicken.

It's actually heaven.

“This collaboration celebrates everything that young people love; think quality coffee, fried chicken, hip hop and sneakers. What more could you want?” says Julian.
