Kept you on the edge of your seat, didn't I? Showing you a mole sauce recipe and holding out on your for TWO WHOLE DAYS for the rest of the recipe. Muahahaha!
Fun fact: One of the things I would like to do before I die is do the voice over for a Disney villain.
Getting back to chicken mole (pronounced moe-lay). This is a recipe I enjoyed making because after having already made the mole sauce the day before, all i needed to do was know how to open packages and containers, and turn on a slow cooker. That's it. Of course, this is not a traditional recipe...this is the abridged, Cliff Notes version for people with little time and little resources (e.g. money). Woot!
-1 package of chicken tenders, about 1 lb
-a batch of mole sauce
-1 can diced tomatoes
*recipe can be found here
1. Spoon a cup of mole sauce down at the bottom of your slow cooker.
2. Get some fresh chicken tenders.
Lay your chicken tenders on the sauce in the cooker. There's one.
And there's some more.
3. Pour the rest of the sauce on top of the chicken.
4. Open a can of diced tomatoes and drain it. This is the kind I used. I love Red Gold tomatoes, for some reason.
Pour the tomatoes on top of the chicken + sauce.
There we go!
5. Now set your slow cooker to low for 5-6 hours.
When you get home after a long day of teaching, meetings, dissertating, or whatever else, you get to come home to this.
The chicken is SO tender from simmering in that sauce all that long. Pair it with some lime cilantro rice to give that smokey rich chicken some brightness.
Have a fantastic weekend!
