More About This Recipe

  • Growing up, my mom made several dishes that were my favorites. Chicken Mole is one of those meals. Every time she would prepare it, I would be first in the kitchen to serve up my plate. I like to cook Chicken Mole, just like mom used to make, for my family, and I am happy to say they love it as much as I do!
