Note from Ricardo

This chicken recipe is a very personal interpretation of a classic Mexican dish that combines turkey, spices, tomatoes, onions, chocolate and the "Mole Poblano”. It is often served at weddings or celebrations. The mole is a Mexican sauce that contains about 40 ingredients from chili peppers, herbs, seeds and nuts, with dry bread, raisins and chocolate. Needless to say I know very few people who have the patience to make this sauce, yet it is delicious. It is a Mexican student, who couldn’t live without his mother’s Mole that gave me his recipe. He uses store-bought mole, to which he adds ground almonds. Do not overcook this sauce to keep its nice consistency. If necessary, add chicken broth. You can find a canned version in Latin American grocery stores and some supermarkets in the ethnic foods aisle. Any leftovers freeze well.
