Chicken Mole

Chicken Mole

04/20/09 | by alvaro [mail] | Categories: Quick Meals, Meals

I threw together this chicken mole today. I didn’t have all the ingredients from a Paula Dean recipe I found, so I just used whatever I had in the pantry. The Goya jalapenos turned out to be an awesome, if not better alternative to boring bell peppers. The little carrots in the can, are a great addition to this dish.

My goodness is this a delicious way to make chicken! One would never imagine how well chicken, chocolate and peppers go together! Brown the chicken a bit in olive oil, remove, wilt the onions until translucent, then add the garlic and spices. When aromatic throw in everything else including the chicken. Simmer 30 - 45 min, until chicken and veggies are to your desired tenderness.

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 onion, coarsely chopped
3-5 cloves garlic, chopped or smashed
2 teaspoons chili powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 can whole tomatoes, quartered + liquid
6+ canned Goya jalapeno peppers + carrots (insides removed unless you want the heat)
__ or Anaheim pepper
__ or 1 bell pepper, coarsely chopped
1 or 2 chipotle peppers, roughly chopped
1 (10-ounce) can chicken broth
__ or 2 tsp chicken Maggie or Knorr + water
2 tablespoons peanut butter
2 tablespoons cocoa powder + 2 tablespoons of honey
__ or 2 oz bitter sweet chocolate
1 (5-pound) chicken, cut into 8 pieces
Toasted pepitas (pumpkin seeds), for garnish
White rice, for serving
