It’s a wonderful thing when you can put cocoa powder and peanut butter in a recipe and still call it dinner! To be fair, there’s only a hint of each in this Chicken with Mole Sauce from Eating Well, and the sweetness is offset by chili powder, cumin, and garlic. This mole comes together very quickly but creates a thick, dark sauce which is great for serving with chicken thighs.
We had this for a family dinner served with Crockpot Rice and Beans and steamed green beans. Everyone really liked the dish, and scooped up the mole sauce with a bit of bread. I’ll be sure to make this one again soon.
