Recipe Notes

Test Kitchen tips

  • This recipe gives you a hint of classic mole flavour. Mole is a Mexican sauce that can be made in many ways, but includes the standout flavours of cumin, cinnamon and cocoa.
  • Bone-in chicken will mean juicier, more flavorful chicken than using boneless chicken breasts.
  • Shred leftover chicken and make chicken tacos for a quick follow-up meal later in the week.

Editor's Note
Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
