Chicken Mole Poblano is a traditional Mexican dish that takes succulent, juicy chicken that’s cooked in a rich Mole sauce and serves it with soft corn tortillas and a fresh salsa of crisp lettuce, tangy cherry tomatoes and creamy avocado to cut through the decadent sauce.
What makes this dish extra special is the addition of my Mole Poblano Sauce. This decadent sauce has deep, rich notes of cocoa, smoky chillies, sweet currants and a slight buttery crunch from nuts. This unique sauce is very traditional to Mexico and can be used to add a hit of flavour to loads of different dishes.
