Chicken With Tomato Chocolate Sauce - Mole Style

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Mia in Germany

Some of the typical ingredients for original mole sauce are difficult to get here. Today I came up with this, and it turned out a pretty good adaptation of the real thing. For the harissa, you can use piri-piri, sambal olek or whatever kind of chili preparation you like.

I never bought ketchup in my life, but for this recipe I did it! And I doubled the amount of sauce!I used the spices as described and all went so well together.Before serving I sprinkled some sesame seed over the chicken. I found this recipe, really different in the preparation from the traditional ones, but WOW! It was so good, so easy and so amazing.I will make this again for sure, thanks for sharing your recipe!
