Quick Chicken Mole


  • Nonstick olive oil spray
  • 1 pound chicken tenders
  • 1/8 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 ½ tsp. chili powder
  • ¼ tsp. cumin
  • ½ tsp. ground cinnamon
  • ½ cup tomato sauce
  • ½ cup chicken broth
  • 2 tbsp. semisweet chocolate chips
  • ½ tbsp. natural almond butter or peanut butter


  1. Spray a medium skillet with olive oil and heat over medium heat. Add chicken tenders, sprinkle with salt and pepper and cook, turning once, until browned on both sides, approximately four minutes total; set aside.
  2. Reduce heat slightly and add garlic, cumin, chili powder and cinnamon.
  3. Cook and stir for 15 seconds. Add remaining ingredients and combine. Bring to a simmer; reduce heat to medium-low. Return chicken to the pan along with any accumulated juices and coat the chicken with the sauce. Simmer until chicken is cooked through, about five minutes more.
