Slow Cooker Mexican Chicken Mole

Submitted by: ERICA057

Introduction

Mole is usually very time-consuming to make, but this is a much easier version that cooks itself! Peanut butter is an easy stand-in for the usual array of ground nuts and seeds.

Ingredients

    -1 package (about 1.5 lbs) boneless skinless chicken breasts
    -1 15oz can tomato puree
    -1 tsp ground cumin
    -1/2 tsp ground coriander seed
    -1/2 tsp aniseed
    -3 tbs chili powder
    -1/2 tbs maple syrup
    -1 cinnamon stick
    -1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
    -2 tbs unsweetened cocoa powder
    -3 large garlic cloves, smashed and peeled
    -2 tbs creamy peanut butter or other nut or seed butter
    -1 canned chipotle pepper, minced
    -Salt and pepper, to taste

Directions

Turn the crock pot on high, and add the tomato sauce and nut butter. Add the other ingredients besides the chicken. Season the chicken with salt and pepper on both sides. At this point, the liquid in the crock pot should be warm enough that you can incorporate the nut butter by stirring. Add the chicken breasts and immediately turn down to low. Cook for 6 hours. To serve, remove the chicken from the crock pot, shred with a fork, and put back into the sauce. Serve with warm corn tortillas, sour cream, and scallions.
