    Chef Tweaker's Note:

    This recipe is adapted from "the Encyclopedia of Creative Cooking" which has been around forever. I like the interesting mix of ingredients. It is reminiscent of a mole but much more simple and not spicy. It called for a whole disjointed chicken which I have replaced with chicken breasts. If you use boneless chicken breasts you will need to watch the cooking time as it will cook faster. I liked Gulf Coast-Style White Rice Pilaf (Arroz Blanco) with this dish.

      We were hesitant about the prunes, so I made this without them, but used the rest of the ingredients. I used sliced almonds, as the almonds, and served with some fries, and mashed potatoes, this was a real nice meal. the chicken itself, was very tasty, and had a very nice distinct flavor, that was among one of the best dinners we have had in a while. Made for PRMR Tag.

      Made this for just the 2 of us so we now only had a very nice dinner but some very tasty leftovers as well! Absolutely enjoyed the combination of fruits & chocolate with one of my favorite meats ~ chicken breasts! I did use the boneless kind (4 large ones) & the oven cooking time was about 30 minutes! Definitely a dish I'll be happy to make again & again! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
