How to Make Mole Sauce & Chicken, a Mexican classic!


  • 1Season chicken with salt/pepper, cumin, and any others that you wish. Add also chicken bullion and cut up onion for extra taste.

    Boil whole chicken until cooked through.
  • 2Remove chicken and set aside.
    Let remaining water cool completely and remove any excess fat.
    When liquid is completely cool, bring it back to a boil and mix in your 2 jars of mole sauce. It's hard like a brick but will dissolve in the sauce.
    Once mole is dissolved - add peanutbutter and mix until sauce thickens.
