Does anyone have a chocolate chicken recipe. I have heard of it, but have yet to find an appealing recipe.

Re: Wanted - chocolate chicken recipe

Are you talking about mole?  I have only attempted to make it from scratch one time and that was long ago.  I find that the jarred paste--particularly the Dona Maria brand is very good.  Luckily I live in an area where there are lots of Mexican immigrants and so I don't need to go far to get it.  You might check the Latino section of the market if they have one.

Re: Wanted - chocolate chicken recipe

im sure you're referring to mexican mole (its mo-leh so dont worry there are no moles in it) which traditionally is made with chocolate.

i know a bit about this as my wife is mexican and its her favorite dish so my in-laws always bring us some over when they come.

try to get the doña maria brand of paste that was mentioned before by SonomaEddie it is an excellent one and very easy to use. dont be put off because its pre-made ive been to mexican street markets and even the little old ladies buy their mole in paste form as making from scratch is long winded and doesnt improve the results. a lot of the chiles the recipe calls for are dried anyway.

here's what to do:

*place a whole or chopped chicken in a pan of water with some onion and garlic and boil till tender.
*remove the chicken and allow to cool.
*gently fry some chopped onion and garlic in a little oil until soft then add the mole paste. (its worth using the lot, if you have any sauce left over it will keep well for another day)
*continue to cook for a few minutes to heat the paste through.
*add the stock from the chicken a few ladlefuls at a time, stirring well between each addition until achieving the required thickness.
*at this point you can return the chicken to the sauce with a little more stock (as the sauce will thicken while reheated), heat through and serve with plain boiled rice.
*if you want to be more traditional, before adding the chicken, add half a slab of dark cooking chocolate and 1/2-1 can of coca cola.
*now return the chicken to the sauce and serve as before.

traditionally the chicken is added in pieces, on the bone, personally i like to pick the chicken from the bone while cold and just add the meat, its really awkward to eat chicken on the bone in a thick brown sauce!

before serving, sprinkle the mole with toasted sesame seeds and serve with hot toasted tortillas.

any leftover sauce is great with enchiladas, just roll some chicken and cheese in a corn tortilla, cover with the mole sauce and heat in the oven.

my mouth is watering, ive got some mole sauce in the fridge that was leftover on monday, it'll be gone by tonight...

Re: Wanted - chocolate chicken recipe

Hey, El.  I always pick the meat off the chicken too and add it to the sauce which I then eat over rice.  I love to put spoonfuls of it in warm corn tortillas along with cheese and a nice healthy (or maybe unhealthy) glob of sour cream and eat it like a heart attack taco.
