  1. Heat the vegetable oil in a Dutch oven or large pot over medium-high heat. Cook the chicken pieces in the hot oil until golden brown on all sides, about 10 minutes. Remove from the pan and set aside. Reduce heat to medium, and stir in the bay leaf, black pepper, cayenne pepper, paprika, cloves, and cinnamon until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the onion and garlic; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes.
  2. Stir in the tomatoes, brown sugar, and chicken broth, and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Once simmering, stir in the chocolate chips until melted, then return the chicken pieces to the pot. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the chicken is tender and no longer pink at the bone, 15 to 20 minutes. Stir in the raisins, and cook 3 minutes longer. Sprinkle with sesame seeds to serve.

Very tasty! the only changes I made were a lot more cayenne since my kids like spicy food and 2 Tbls of chile powder. Also, I always marinate any meat before using it in a dish. put in a zipl...

this was very easy to make and turned out better than mole i have had in dining out. i baked this in the oven after i assembled the sauce on the stove. i slow cooked it for about 45 minutes and ...

This is fabulous - very rich and savory, full of wonderful fragrance and flavor. The first time I made it it turned out a bit too sweet for my taste, so now I leave out the brown sugar entirely...

Loved this. The only thing I would change is that I would put the sauce in a blender or food processer to homogenize it before serving.

Made this for a wine-pairing dinner at a Paso Robles winery with Chef Andre and the result was fabulous! Adjustments: Used fresh ripe tomatoes, added crushed chiptole pepper & more cayenne at t...

Really enjoyed this dish - will definitely be making it again. I may leave out the ground cloves the next time

Outstanding! I had never had this before but I always thought it sounded interesting, so I made it for Valentine's day (since it has chocolate in it) and my husband and I LOVED it. I just used...
