Nourishing Chocolate Carnival: Chicken Mole

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Kimi at the Nourishing Gourmet is hosting the “Nourishing Chocolate Carnival!” Yum.

I had originally planned on preparing one of our favorite dishes for the holiday, of quick Chicken Mole, from our Whole Foods Market Cookbook. Unfortunately, I forgot to place my co-op order last month (which would have included chickens). So, we’re doing homemade pizza instead. But I still wanted to share this delicious recipe with you! (And yes, it does pertain to this carnival; one of the essential ingredients in Mole is Cocoa Powder!)

I begin with the quick Whole Foods Chicken Mole recipe. I usually cut up a whole fryer chicken, instead of purchasing chicken breasts. This is especially delicious if you let it simmer for hours! I use a homemade chicken bone broth, instead of purchasing a can of broth, and home-canned tomatoes. We enjoy serving this alongside rice and/or in tortillas.

The flavors in this romantic dish are incredible. During our first year of marriage, I cooked up a big pot of Chicken Mole, and froze containers of it, for quick meals. Now the smell of Mole reminds me of those newlywed days… perfect for Valentine’s Day!

Head over to the Nourishing Gourmet for more delicious chocolate recipes!
