This recipe is from Rachael Ray. Something I'm curious to try.
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 12 chicken wings, tips discarded and wings separated at the joint
- 3 garlic cloves, chopped
- 2 tablespoons chili powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground allspice
- 2 cups tomato sauce
- 3 ounces dark chocolate, coarsely chopped
- 1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
- 2 tablespoons cilantro, finely chopped
- In a large, heavy skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the chicken wings and cook, turning occasionally, until browned, about 5 minutes; transfer to a plate. Add the garlic, chili powder and allspice and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Stir in the tomato sauce, scraping up the browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Add 1 cup water, the chocolate, hot sauce and 1/2 teaspoon salt and cook, stirring, until the chocolate is melted.
- Return the wings to the pan, lower the heat, cover and simmer until the wings are cooked through and the sauce is reduced to a thick glaze, about 20 minutes. Sprinkle with the cilantro.
(TRIED IT!!! I added 1 individual packet of Spenda to the mole as it was cooking. This is a personal preference. I would suggest that you use minced garlic instead of chopped. The minced garlic infuses quickly.The ground allspice is hot enough for me. Add hot sauce if you prefer but Cayenne pepper might be a better choice.) 1-11-09 This is chicken wings with a spicy chocolate mole sauce. The allspice with the chili powder and hot pepper sauce will make them very spicy. This recipe is a combination of 3 published recipes for sauces. I will prepare without the hot pepper sauce. It will be spicy enough. This is for mole sauce lovers! Can't wait to try it!
I reduced this to a 1/4 recipe, using 3 wings, for my DH. He loves mole, which this reminded us of, and was interested to try it. I used unsweetened baking chocolate, subbed a mix of cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves for the allspice, and I used Valentina Extra Hot sauce (about 2-3 times as much as called for, as DH loves spicy food). He LOVED these! They were dark and rich and smokey, but despite the extra hot sauce they were still not too terribly spicy. I think next time I might add some cayenne or ground chipotle to the spice mix to pep it up a little more. Thanks very much for posting, Boomette!
We tried this tonite. Thought it would be more like a mexican mole sauce. This was very odd tasting. I ended up wiping off the sauce because everyone thought it tasted awful!
