Pumkinseed Mole

This was a recipe I found on the Ramekins website way back in 2006 after I got back from Mexico but sadly its not there any more. But I have a print out!! So here we are the nicest mole I can make and its pretty easy.

For the chicken & stock
big pinch of salt
1 small onion chopped
2 chicken breasts

For the sauce
100g pumpkin seeds, freshly toasted (4-5min in the oven at 200C)
large can tomatillos (kindly provided by the laughinggeos in NOLA), drained and rinsed
2 green chillies
5 lettuce leaves
1 shallot, peeled and roughly diced
3 cloves garlic, peeled
3 large sprigs coriander
dash of ground cumin
big pinch of black pepper

Cover the chicken breast and onion in boiling water, add the salt and simmer for 12min until the chicken is cooked. Remove the chicken and slice it. Save the stock - straining out any onioy bits.

Put in a blender all the other ingredients with about 100ml of the saved stock. Blitz and then put into a pan. Bring the sauce to the boil and add the chicken, simmer for 15min and then serve with rice for a super yummy tea!

or you could put the chicken and sauce in an empenada - which is how I first had it

This sounds delish. Have you ever put chocolate in it?
