Dinner: Chocolate Chicken

Unless you're Mexican, Chocolate Chili Chicken may not seem like an obvious combination... But the richness of the chocolate set against the warmth of the chili makes for a gorgeous rich stew style dinner...
Rather like adding a bit of coffee to your casserole or pie to add depth of flavour, it's worth bearing in mind dark good quality chocolate next time you want to add something extra to your casserole.

On Sunday we made Chocolate Chili Chicken- based on the Mexican Mole. It's very very simple- starting by frying onions and chillis with some chicken (or beef!) in Cinnamon (about two teaspoons..) add a tin of tomatoes and a few cubes of dark chocolate (about 20z will do four people, but it entirely depends on how chocolately you would or wouldn't want it...)

Simply leave it to boil away and serve up!

Yum yum.



  1. I've never tried anything like this! Must do so. Takes a bit of courage I suppose. Also, that's a good tip about putting coffee in a casserole. Would have never occurred to me..

  2. This sounds really good. I love the way you cook as a real person. A bit of this and a bit of that and about this much. It gives us the freedom to add more of what we like and less of what we don't. Going to try this chocolate chicken this week.

  3. Aaaah thankyou! I'm sorry i can't be more accurate for you ^_^ Please do give it a go... and if you do, let me know how it turned out!
