Directions

  1. Cut the chickens into pieces, reserving the breasts. Place chicken pieces except the breasts in a deep saucepan over medium heat; add the onion, garlic, and chicken broth. Cover the pan and simmer 25 minutes.
  2. Cut the breasts into halves and add to the saucepan; simmer until the chicken breasts are no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, about 20 minutes more. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Remove the chicken to a cutting board. Remove the skin and bones from the chicken; cut the meat into bite sized pieces.
  3. Strain the broth through a fine mesh strainer, reserving the liquid and discarding the onion, garlic, and skimmed fat. If you have less than 3 cups of reserved liquid, add water to make 3 cups. If you have more than 3 cups, return to the pan and bring to a boil; cook until volume of liquid reduces to 3 cups.
  4. Combine the chili powder, almonds, banana, cinnamon, salt, tortilla pieces, sesame seeds, and pine nuts in a blender. Blend on low, slowly adding the reserved liquid in a stream until the mixture is smooth. Pour the mixture and remaining liquid into a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the butter and chocolate; cook and stir until the butter and chocolate have melted. Stir the chicken pieces into the sauce; continue cooking until the chicken is heated completely through, 5 to 10 minutes.

Today is the first time I have ever made mole sauce. I thought the ingredients on the list were easy to purchase, and the cooking time was relatively short. I was a bit concerned as to how much I would like the chocolate part, but it was quite tasty. I did add a tad of jalepeno chili chopped finely, and a bit of tomatoes in the initial cooking of the onions, chicken, and garlic. Also, I added a tiny bit more chocolate and chili powder after tasting. I will def. make it again. Boardered on a 5 star!!

I've made many recipes from AR and this is one of the few I haven't liked; and I'm not a picky eater. I do enjoy sweet and savoury combinations however something about the way the sauce tasted did not please my tastebuds. I'm just glad I tasted this before cutting up the chicken and tossing it in! I have never tried a mole before. This may be for some, and not for others. I'm not trying to give your recipe a bad name, Deondra! I'll just have to look up something else I can toss together with the boiled chicken.
