Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Green & Black's Chicken Mole

Preheat the oven to 180°C/ 160°C (fan)/ 400°F/ Gas 6 

Peel one whole onion and slice a few rings off it (as finely as you can)

Separate the onion rings, place them in a bowl of cold water and set aside

Tip: the cold water removes some of the harsh flavour from the raw onion 

2 Green & Black's Chicken Mole

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick with a matching lid) with 1 tbsp [2 tbsp] vegetable oil, add the chicken with a pinch of salt and cook for 3 min on each side until golden 

Meanwhile, dice the remaining onion[s]

Transfer the coloured chicken to a baking tray, put it in the oven for 7-10 min or until slightly under cooked, then return the pan to a low heat, add a knob of butter and the diced onion with a pinch of salt and sugar and cook until step 5

3 Green & Black's Chicken Mole

Meanwhile, add the rice, 350ml [700ml] water to a pot with a lid over a high heat and bring to the boil

Once boiling, reduce the heat to very low and cook, covered, for 10-15 min or until all the water has absorbed and the rice is cooked

Once cooked, remove from the heat and keep covered until serving

 
4 Green & Black's Chicken Mole

Meanwhile, boil a kettle

Dice the tomato[es] 

Chop the chocolate up coarsely

Dissolve the stock cube[s] in 300ml [500ml] boiled water, add the chopped chocolate and peanut butter and whisk to combine - this is your chocolate stock

5 Green & Black's Chicken Mole

Add the cumin and tomato paste and to the softened onion and cook for 1 min 

Add the chipotle paste, diced tomato and chocolate stock

Whisk to combine and bring to the boil over a medium-high heat - this is your mole sauce

 

6 Green & Black's Chicken Mole

Transfer the chicken to the mole sauce and cook, covered, for 5 min or until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce has thickened 

Meanwhile, chop the coriander finely, including the stalks 

Roll the lime[s] with your hand on a hard surface (to release more juice!) and cut in half

 

7 Green & Black's Chicken Mole

Shred the cooked chicken while in the pan (we like to use a knife and fork!) 

Fluff the cooked rice and squeeze the juice of half the [whole] lime into it and mix in the coriander 

Cut the remaining lime into wedges
