Pronounce molay  apparently. This uses unsweetened cocoa powder in a hot dish but don't let that put you off because it's it's dynamite!

Chicken Mole


570 g (1 1/4lb)bonless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips


Ground black pepper

1 large onion, chopped

1 large green pepper, cored, seeded and chopped

2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

2 tablespoons chilli powder

teaspoon ground cinnamon

teaspoon ground cloves

400 g tinned chopped tomatoes

2 tablespoons unsweetened peanut butter

2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

2 spring onions chopped


Sprinkle the chicken with salt and black pepper. Coat a large non-stick frying pan with olive oil and place over a medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook for about 8 minutes, turning once or until browned on both sides. Transfer the chicken to a large plate.

Add the onion, green pepper and garlic to the frying pan and cook for 3 minutes, or until the onion becomes translucent. Stir in the chilli powder, cinnamon and cloves and cook for 1 minute. Return the chicken to the pan. Add the tomatoes (with juice), peanut butter and cocoa powder and bring to the boil. Cover and simmer, stirring every few minutes, for 25 minutes, turning once or until the chicken is no longer pink. Garnish with the spring onion.


Serves 4


I found that either you need to use a hell of a big frying pan or use a large non-stick pot, it is all the same to the chicken but when everything is added it makes for a lot of sauce until it cooks down.
