Ingredients:3 whole chicken beasts, split and boned
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 15-oz can of tomato sauce (I use S&W thick sauce or mexican tomatoes or
1/2 c of your favorite homemade or commercial tomato salsa
4 tsp unsweetened coca
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp oregano
mashed or finely chopped garlic (as many as you wish 2-3)
dash of ground cloves
dash of nutmeg
dash of allspice
some nut mixture (see note below)
salt to taste
Preparation:Pound chicken to 1/2" thickness. Lightly brown in oil (2 minutes on
each side) and drain oil. Add garlic while chicken is cooking. Add remaining
ingredients after oil is drained. Stir and bring to boil. Then reduce heat
and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove chicken and keep warm. Cook and stir
sauce until thickened. Pour sauce over chicken.

Nut Mixture:
Most moles contain nuts. For this recipe, I use 1-2 Tbsp of sesame seeds. I
either grind them OR I pound them into the chicken. Sometimes I add 1 Tbsp
ground almonds to the sesame seeds. Alternatively, one could use a heaping
teaspoon of chinese sesame seed paste OR Rogelio Bueno Red Mole paste (which
is primarily pumpkin and sesame seeds).
