I have made this dish for my friends and family many times and it is a huge hit!! Even some that think they are Mole experts love it. It's a little embarrassing to share how easy it is. The only thing that I did differently was double the sauce because everyone loves the sauce and it's good for leftovers. I tried it with chicken breast and it is very good but found that using skinless boneless thighs are much better. It is absolutely a keeper! Thanks to whoever shared it.
delicious easy maybe not so quick We've made this twice now. Both times it has been easy to do and the mole sauce is delicious. The one problem we've come across is that the chicken doesn't cook as fast as the recipe suggests meaning we've had to leave it in the mole sauce longer for cooking. (It could be an issue with our pan our stove etc.) We've been using a meat thermometer to measure the temperature and the chicken just doesn't heat up quickly.
Simple as can be and delicious! I goofed and put in 1/3 cup of dark chocolate chips (didn't read the measuring cup). For as simple as this recipe is it will become a staple alongside an avocado/tomato salad.. Thank you!
This was quick and tasty. Like Kitty I had to sub some ingredients for what I had on hand: used cocoa a bit of sugar tomato paste to make the tomato sauce african pepper and peri peri pepper seasoning (for the cumin and cinnamon) peanut butter and water instead of broth. still used the chile powder garlic and the method. it was very close to the red moles I ve had in Arizona. It was really good! As written I am sure it is tasty as well!! So glad I stumbled upon this to do a mole inspired sauce.
I've never made mole sauce before because the recipes are intensive and time consuming. This was super easy and is so good. Will definitely satisfy my craving! I'm slow-cooking chicken breast to shred and have with it. The only thing I subbed was peanut butter powder for the real thing as I don't keep it on hand.
Excellent change of taste My husband and I loved the rich flavor of this but my 15-year-old son (who's a picky eater) did not. It is great over brown rice and I served it with calabacitas (like the picture). I didn't make any significant changes to the recipe nor will I. Pros: Tasty Easy to Make most items on-hand Cons: Not for picky eaters
Very convincing! This is an excellent cheaters mole. Made minor adjustments - more or less of the listed ingredients to my taste and threw in some salsa tatemada for depth of flavor and additional heat. Let it go low and slow for a half hour. Home run! Well done E.W.! Pros: Easy quick full of flavor
