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.
