Easy Slow Cooker Chicken Mole

Easy Slow Cooker Chicken MoleThis week got crazier than I thought it would with back to school and preparing for the big Cookbook Club Review post next week. I had no idea what I was going to post today. Luckily my mother came to my rescue with a recipe and photo of this Easy Slow Cooker Chicken Mole.

If you are not familiar with Mole (pronounced mo-lay) it is a traditional Mexican dish made with a thick rich sauce made from CHOCOLATE! The history of the dish is iffish according to Mexonline. Regardless of how it got created it is a great part of Mexican culture and it is a delicious and flavorful dish.

Traditionally the sauce is made with about 20 ingredients and it cooks on the stove for hours, which Ma’am has made. But, she has also been known to use prepared sauce to make life simpler. There is already chocolate in the prepared sauce, but to make it even richer she adds a more Mexican chocolate. Both the sauce and the chocolate should be easy to find in the Mexican food aisle of any well stocked grocery store.

To make this version, just add the sauce and chocolate in your slow cooker with some chicken, beef or pork and let it cook for a few hours. Delicioso!
