This dish is just as good as it looks! Lucky for me I don’t like dark chocolate plain, so this made it into the recipe and not into my mouth. 😀
2 lbs chicken pieces bone in breast – Skin removed
Sea salt and black pepper to taste
2 tbsp ghee
1 medium onion chopped
4 cloves garlic crushed or minced
two cans of tomatoes, crushed, 15 0z each.
Two tomatoes chopped
2 dried chipotle chilis
1/4 cup creamy Almond Butter
2.5 oz dark chocolate 70% or above
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon cumin powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon power
1/2 tsp ancho chili powder
avocado cilantro and jalapeno, all chopped
Generously salt and pepper the chicken.
Place a pan over medium heat and add the ghee.
Once the ghee has warmed, add the chicken and brown on all sizes. This may need to be done in batches.
Move the chicken to slow cooker.
Add onion to the same pan and saute until translucent.
Add garlic and saute for 1 to 2 minutes.
Transfer onion and garlic to the slow cooker.
Add the tomatoes, chili peppers, almond butter, dark chocolate, salt and spices to the slow cooker.
Cook on low to 4 to 6 hours or until the chicken is tender and pulls apart easily.
Top mole with the avocado, cilantro and jalapeno and serve!
The curiosity of chocolate chicken kept them in the kitchen. 🙂
I couldn’t wait until dinner to taste it. Wow, it was even better than I expected!
I served it over roasted cauliflower.
Delicious! I can’t wait to make this again.
