I don't remember where I got this recipe but I thought it was good enough to handwrite on one of my recipe cards. I do remember that the feta was really great with it and seemed to bring out the flavors.

Made for Comfort Cafe Game. This was pretty good considering I've never had anything mole before I didn't cut the chicken as mine wasn't getting done and it was getting too brown. So I took the chicken out of the pan, made the tomato sauce portion and put the chicken back in. Then I removed the chicken again and stirred in the cocoa. I think that next time I make it, I'll cut the chicken in strips first like one of the other reviewers did. Thanks for posting this Engrossed!

Review Tag 2007 ~ This was really nice! (I also just realised I forgot the feta!) I cut up the chicken into strips first, then let them sit in the chili powder, salt and pepper for about an hour or so before frying them. I also added all the spices to the tomatoes and just poured it all over the chicken after it was returned to the pan. I could really taste the cumin and the cocoa powder. Very interesting mix of flavors. I did add a bit of water at the end to make it more juicy. Served with orzos. Will definitely make again and hopefully remember the feta! Thanks Engrossed.

I guess I expected this to have a little more pizzaz. I tasted the chicken as I was slicing it, and really liked the flavor. When the sauce was finished, each of the distinctive flavors seemed to fade away. I played with the leftovers by adding more cinnamon and cumin, and added a little tomato sauce to make it saucier and was pleased with the result. I think this could be a great recipe with a little tweaking. Thanks Engrossed for posting this one.
