Directions

  1. Heat the oil in a large deep skillet over medium heat. Add onions, and cook for a few minutes, then stir in tomatoes, and cook until they release all of their juice. Stir in the hot chile peppers, cilantro, black pepper and sugar. Bring to a boil, and let it cook for about 10 minutes to thicken.
  2. Add chicken breasts to the skillet, along with the oregano, cinnamon, cumin, bay leaf, chocolate and lime juice. Simmer over medium heat for 15 to 20 minutes or until chicken breasts are cooked through. Chicken breasts should have an internal temperature of 170 degrees F (75 degrees C) when fully cooked. Remove bay leaf, and serve chicken breasts smothered in sauce. Garnish with additional fresh parsley or cilantro.

This was a good recipe! I didn't use as many onions because I had less chicken breasts. After the chicken was cooked I shredded it and added it again to the mole, then used it for burritos. The combination of chicken mole, rice, beans, and toppings for the burrito made it very good.

Chicken en Mole is what I always order at Mexican restaurants and this was similar, but not good enough. I added more sugar and even semi-sweet chocolate chips to make it sweeter.

This is not like any other mole that I have had. However, with that said, I don't think it's that bad of a dish either. I used leg quarters vs breasts. Usually, I think mole is served with chicken pieces. I think it added some additional flavor. Just know what you are getting into.

I followed the directions to a T and couldn't even bring myself to serve it for dinner. A great way to waste your ingredients...will never make this recipe again. EVER.

This recipe was very tasty, if you are into mole with a lot of veggies (onion and tomato.) I loved the dark chocolate/cinnamon combo and have added this into my permanent recipe box! Thanks!

Much too thin for a good mole. Flavors a bit offand not complex enough

We doctored this a bit, added chicken stock and cooked it down, and pureed the veggies. It was still not the mole taste I was looking for. There's definately something lacking here, and I don't see how there could have been anything closer to mole had the recipe been followed exactly. Not too bad to eat, but not good, either.
