It's Monday, blah, How about a Recipe!

Today, I thought a recipe was in order! I am going to get Crafty later today! But until then, if you Enjoy AUTHENTIC Mexican Cuisine... then perhaps you have had Mole. A cocoa chicken of sorts. Here is a way to have that at home! (For those of you who do not already!)

A Quicker Mole
By Carolina Pena Nacianceno

·         10+  Chicken Drumsticks & Thighs
·         Orange Peel
·         1 Jar Dona Maria Mole Sauce
·         2 Heaping Tbs. Peanut Butter
·         1 Tbs. Chili Powder
·         2/3 tsp Cumin
·         2/3 tsp Garlic Powder
·         2/3 tsp Paprika
·         2/3 tsp each Salt & Pepper
·         2-3 Tbs. Flour
Cover Chicken in large pot with water and Orange peel, boil at low simmer.  Remove Chicken from water. Keep covered to maintain warmth.  In the water, dissolve jar of Mole Sauce, Peanut Butter & Seasonings.  Stir until completely dissolved. Dissolve 2-3 spoonfuls of flour in water, and add this to thicken the sauce. Re-add the chicken and simmer.
I use about 15-20 skinless drums/thighs depending on size! The picture above was my first time with my Grandma's recipe and it was SUPER saucy with LOTS of sauce left over!!!
