Chicken with Mole Negro

At Seatonfire, we respect our food, and we love to acknowledge its traditions and development. This type of dish is very popular in Latin American countries, the home of chocolate. Although with all these ingredients this dish might sound a little odd, it is incredible. The flavours are complex and dance on your tongue. Try it on your dinner guests, but don't tell them about the chocolate until they applaud your culinary mastery.
