Ingredients

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

Directions

* 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've made this twice now with only the slightest tweaks (added a couple teaspoons of 'Italian Seasoning' mix from our co-op). It's absolutely perfection.
