I was trying this out for the first time yesterday. I happened to be making a double batch so I could freeze half for another meal, which worked out well because I ended up with unexpected company for dinner (my mom/stepdad and my brother/SIL).
We had more that enough with the extra, but with three big men, three mamas, and couple of kids, a single batch would not have fed everyone. True there is a lot of extra mole sauce, but I saved it and will use over grilled chicken breasts or something like that.
Anyway, everyone raved about the dinner and my SIL wants the recipe.
Changes I made:
-Used half boneless chicken breast, half boneless chicken thighs
-Used chunky peanut butter (it is what we had on hand)
-Used half regular chili powder/half ancho chili powder (already had it in the cupboard and figured it was a good a time as any to use some up)
-Took out the chicken and mixed the mole with an immersion blender about an hour before completion (then added the chicken back in to finish cooking)
-Shredded the chicken for serving
We had this with small corn tortillas, queso blanco, avocado, yellow rice, and sour cream. Also a nice green salad on the side.
