A fair bit of chocolate left after making the pear & chocolate crumble, so time for another of those excellent Annabel Langbein recipes, spicy chicken mole. It’s really just chicken & tomatoes & capsicums, plus spices, with the addition of 4 squares of dark chocolate. The chocolate gets mixed into the sauce & stirred till smooth before being poured over the chicken and bunged in the oven. The sauce gains a darker hue as a result of the addition of chocolate, but the real impact comes at the table. Remove the lid from the casserole and the first thing that hits you is the smell of chocolate. Wonderful. Even better, it’s just a background to the spicy sauce; not like eating chocolate chicken. Which would be disgusting.
