Thoroughly Modern Mole

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Clifford Boren

Mexican cuisine purists will want to toss a grenade into my kitchen when they see this recipe. But I stand by my update of the venerable Chicken Mole. It's delicious. Be venturous and give it a shot. Cook time does not include cooking the chicken if you use the raw one.

The ingredients list coco powder and peanut butter, but these ingredients are not listed in the instructions. I added them to the sauce in step 5 (along with the salsa, broth, ...) before cooking and it came out fine.
