There are something like 50 ingredients in the authentic prepartion of this dish. And I know the chocolate has to have a hint of cinnamon.

Would you be so kind and share your recipe of this dish? I absolutely love chicken mole. Thank you!

How to make a mean chicken mole

I have never tried it, but I researched a little, and this was a very mexican web site, and seemed authentic. I've heard that it is hard to make, and I can beleive it because there are a lot of ingedients involved. I'm still not sold on chocolate and chicken, but I am often surprised at how well certain flavors work together, when used in the right amounts. Good Luck Jhlcomp.

Thanks for the info - actually the flavor is amazingly good and really needs the chocolate. :-)

This is actually for Turkey Mole but certainly roasted chicken works fine:
TURKEY MOLE
Sauce:
12 oz dried red chile pods, preferably a mix of anchos, mulatos & pasillas
6 TBL sesame seeds
4 TBL peanut oil
3/4 cup sliced almonds
6 garlic cloves, with skins on
6 small tomatoes, preferably Romas or other plum type, whole & unpeeled
2 1/2 cups unsalted chicken stock
Juice of 1 orange
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
1 medium onion, chopped
1 day old tortilla torn into quarters
2 oz unsweetened chocolate
1 1/2 oz Mexican chocolate, preferably Ibarra (or an equal amt of bittersweet chocolate with a pinch of cinnamon)
1 canned chipotle chile, optional
1 tsp ground canela (Mexican cinnamon) or regular cinnamon
1 tsp anise seeds, toasted & groun
1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper
1/2 tsp cumin seeds, toasted & ground
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp ground cloves

Preheat oven 300°. Break the stems off the chiles & remove the seeds. Rinse the chiles & transfer them to a baking sheet. Tost them for about 5 minutes, watching to make sure they don't burn. Turn off the oven. Transfer the chiles to a large saucepan & cover them w/water. Simmer over medium heat about 30 minutes until the chiles are softened.
While the chiles simmer, prepare the seeds & nuts in a large, heavy skillet on top of the stove. First, toast the sesame seeds over medium heat. Watch them carefully. The seeds are done when fragrant, lightly browned & popping merrily, a matter of several minutes. Don't let them burn. Spoon the seeds into a blender. Add 2 TBL of the oil to the warm skillet & stir in the almonds. saute until the almonds are lightly colored & fragrant. Transfer them to the blender.
Wipe out the skillet with a paper towel & increase the heat to medium-high. Scatter the garlic in the skillet, turning the cloves occasionally so that they soften & darken on all sides, a matter of a few minutes. Remove the garlic from the skillet & set it aside. Add the tomatoes to the skillet, turning occasionally as they soften & darken. The skinds will split a bit during the process. Remove the tomatoes & set them aside until they are cool enough to handle.
Remove the skins from the garlic & tomatoes, stem the tomatoes & add borth to the blender.
Pour about 1 1/2 cups of the stock into the blender. Puree the mixture for 2-3 minutes. The mixture will become smooth but a little grainy. Pour it into a large bowl.
Drain most of the liquid from the chiles, reserving 1 cup of the liquid. Put the chiles & about 1/2 cup of the reserved liquid into the blender & puree 1-2 minutes. Pour the chiles into the bowl of pureed tomatoes & almonds.
Add the remaining sauce ingredients to the blender & puree 2-3 minutes. This mixture, too, will become smooth but a little grainy. Pour it into the bowl & stir the mixtures together.
Wipe out any tomato residue from the skillet & add the remaining oil. Warm the oil over medium heat. Spoon in the mole suace & fry it for about 10 minutes, stirring up from the bottom constantly. The sauce should be thick but spoonable. Mix in a little of the reserved chile cooking liquid if it seems too thick. Cool & refrigerate the sauce for later reheating or serve immediately.
Arrange the turkey slices on a serving platter & top generously w/the mole. Surround the dish with sprigs of cilantro if you like & sprinkle w/minced cilantro & onion. From "Texas Home Cooking"
