Description

Drawing inspiration from the mole sauces of Mexican cuisine, this chicken is baked in a rich chocolate sauce. Seared in cinnamon and oil, the chicken is aromatic and flavorful. The chocolate sauce is prepared separately in a dutch oven for the maximum release of flavor. Combining unsweetened cocoa with chili flakes, wine, and a little cream, the chocolate sauce is rich and creamy with just the right amount of spice. Bake time for this dish is 30 minutes.

Ingredients

  • olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 kilogram chicken thighs (deboned)
  • 1 onions (sliced finely)
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 150 milliliters red wine
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 300 milliliters chicken stock
  • salt
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 80 grams raisins
  • 1 teaspoon corn starch
  • 1 tablespoon water
