Nutrition Facts: 240 calories 9 grams fat
3 cups chopped onion
3 tablespoons vegetables oil
1/2 teaspoon coriander seeds
1/2 teaspoon aniseed
3 tablespoons chili powder
2 teaspoons sugar
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tablespoons peanut butter
2 cups chicken broth -- (2 to 3)
a 1-pound can tomatoes, drained and chopped
2 tablespoons raisins
3 garlic cloves, minced and mashed to a paste with 3/4 teaspoon salt
2 pounds chicken wings (about 10) *
cooked rice as an accompaniment
1 teaspoon sesame seeds
* Or any other type of chicken pieces
In a large heavy skillet sauté the onion in the oil over moderately high heat, stirring, until it is golden brown. In a mortar with a pestle crush the coriander seeds and the aniseed, stir them into the onion mixture with the chili powder, the sugar, the cinnamon, and the cloves, and cook the mixture over moderate heat, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the peanut butter and tomatoes, cook for 2 minutes. Stir in the cocoa powder, the peanut butter, 2 cups of the broth, the raisins, the garlic paste, and salt to taste and simmer the sauce, uncovered, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes.
While the sauce is cooking cut off the wing tips, reserving them for another use such as stock if desired, and halve the wings at the joint. Pat the wings dry, season them with salt and pepper, and on the oiled rack of a broiler pan broil them, skin side up, under a preheated broiler about 4 inches from the heat for 10 minutes, or until they are golden. Turn the wings and broil them for 10 minutes more, or until they are golden. In a blender or food processor purée the sauce in batches, adding the remaining broth as necessary to thin it to the desired consistency. Transfer the sauce to the skillet, add the wings, and simmer the mixture, uncovered, for 30 minutes. Serve the wings with the mole sauce over the rice, sprinkled with the sesame seeds.
Serves 4 to 6.
"I tried this today, minus the celery seed, added minced garlic. I only had thinly sliced, boneless, skinless chicken breast on hand, so used that. I loved it, and will try it again using different hot sauces (we have at least a dozen kinds in the pantry b/c of DH). DH enjoyed it, as well as my ... " - miss tinkerbell
"I make pizza often. From finding the best dough recipe to the best kind of mozzarella and of course, the best sauce recipe, it's a never ending journey. Recently I came up with my favorite dough recipe. It's simple and it reminds me of pizza huts regular crust, not thin. So now I was ... " - melb b.

"Just made this tonight... It was really good -I HAD to add bacon though. Fried up 4 thick slices of bacon then sauteed the onions in the bacon grease before adding to give the soup some flavor. Put 1/2 the crumbled bacon in the soup then used the rest as garnish. Added green ... " - amikins

"I've made this twice (doubled the recipe both times) - definitely a keeper and no comparison to store-bought. My only tweaks: I added a half-tablespoon of garlic salt, crushed the fennel seeds (mortar and pestle) and used a hand-blender when it was done to make it smooth. The leftovers keep really well in the freezer." - cyarcher3
