Chicken Mole Sandwich with Mole Rice

Kathy Griffin


I have had Mole before but always when I went to a Mexican restaurant, So this is the first time I have ever cooked with it, and I gotta say I think I will keep this on hand. Didn't know what to make to go with it so I made rice

Add 2 cups water, bring to a boil, remove from heat and cover. Let set until all water is absorbed. When ready to serve fluff with fork and add some of the mole sauce from the crock pot over it.
  3. AVOCADO SPREAD**** Split avocado in half and remove seed and remove skin, place in bowl, using a fork smash the avocado, add yogurt, salt and pepper flakes, mix well
  4. BUILD YOUR SAMMIE**** Cut the thawed sheet of puff pastry into 6 pieces, place on baking sheet lined with parchment paper,place another sheet of parchment paper on top of pastry, place another baking sheet on top of that, if your sheets aren't heavy place a iron skillet on top for weight, or 2 bricks wrapped in foil. bake for 20-25 minutes in a preheated 350 degree oven. let cool, spread avocado spread on each piece, add chicken. split in half and serve beside rice. **** You can use any bread you want****
