Spicy Chicken Mole

By Chef Deniz Tarakcioglu


  • 4 chicken thighs, skin on, ideally bone in
  • 250mL mole rojo


  • Preheat your oven to 500F. In a heavy pan, heat up vegetable oil. Season the chicken with salt and brown in the pan. Add the mole, coat and transfer in the oven around 25 minutes or until the internal temperature reads 165F.
  • Keep an eye on the chicken during cooking process so the mole doesn’t reduce and burn. Add 30mL water to dilute, if this happens.
