Introduction: Chicken in Peanut Mole Sauce
Many people enjoy the taste of Mexican mole, the famous typical dish that is prepared with different seeds, chiles and other ingredients mixed by artisans to get its famous taste.
If you want to try a good Mole there are two options: you buy it in a can (taste is not as good as the traditional) or you visit a Mexican town and buy one (they come as a paste) and use it little by little which is not something you can do every day.
In this instructable I am showing how to cook a delicious home made Peanut Mole that will be easy enough (and you will find ingredients easily, too) to prepare the day you want, you will feel closer to Mexico! ;)
Step 1: Ingredients
1 cup of peeled peanuts (it can be the commercial brand you find in the supermarket)
1 piece of bread
1 chile ancho
2 cups of chicken soup
Chicken legs and thighs
Step 2: Fry Peanuts
Put your peanuts with a tablespoon of oil in a hot pan at medium heat. Stir them constantly so they don't get burned. When they have a golden look put them in a plate.
Step 3: Tomatoes and Onions
Slice your tomatoes and onions and take them to the hot pan with just a little bit of oil. Let them cook for 3 minutes from each side and place them with your peanuts.
Step 4: Chile and Bread
This kind of chile usually come with seeds. Open it to take the seeds out first. Put it in the hot pan with some oil and let it fry for 2 minutes from each side.
Place the slice of bread in the pan too for 3 minutes from each side.
Step 5: Blend
Place your ingredients in a blender when they are not too hot. Use some chicken bouillon to make it easier to blend it together.
Step 6: Heat Up
Pour your sauce in a hot pan and let it come to a boil.
Step 7: Chicken
Place your chicken pieces in the sauce and bath them. Use a spoon to take them from the pot to the plate and add more sauce on top.
Enjoy with rice and fresh corn tortillas!
