Directions

  1. In a large bowl, mix together sweetened condensed milk, and 2 tablespoon chicken granules. Place chicken breasts in bowl, and turn to coat all sides of the chicken. Cover, and refrigerate for at least 5 to 6 hours; overnight is best.
  2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  3. In a roasting pan, heat 4 tablespoons of the oil on the stove top over medium-high heat. Cook onion, carrot, celery, chile pepper, garlic, and shallot with rosemary, thyme, bay leaves, juniper berries, peppercorns, cloves and cinnamon stick in oil until vegetables are evenly browned. Stir in 1 cup wine, cover, and cook in the preheated oven for 25 minutes; gradually add remaining wine to the pan during this time. Stir in chicken stock, and continue cooking for 1 hour.
  4. Strain contents of roasting pan into a saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat to reduce sauce. Melt chocolate in the sauce, stirring until smooth.
  5. In a large skillet, heat the remaining two tablespoons of oil. Season chicken with remaining chicken granules, covering both sides generously. Cook in hot oil until evenly browned and cooked through. Pour sauce over chicken, and heat through.

While this wasn't the best chicken dinner I've ever had, I had to rate it a 5 for being delicious and creative! I would have never in a million years considered putting chocolate on chicken, but it really works. The chicken was wonderfully moist and I love the smell of cooking chocolate.

Delicious! Even my finicky 8 year old loved it. I used a whole fryer to make this recipe, had to cook the chicken in 2 batches. Served it with frijoles and gorditas. Great recipe!

Chicken was too sweet from the marinade but the sauce was bitter. Didnt have a lot of depth of flavor; surprising from the number of ingredients.
