A couple of links

I have found a few links that I want to keep on hand to try. I’m going to link them, then I’ll write a review after I have tried them. ūüôā

Slowcooker Chocolate Chicken Mole (link appears broken – brown text is a direct C&P from the site)

{chocolate chicken mole}

I am in search of the perfect paleo chicken mole recipe. So, if you have one, please share… I would love to try it!¬†I made¬†this¬†one¬†a few months ago. It was good, but not quite chocolatey enough.¬†Over the weekend, I¬†used Ingrid Hoffman’s¬†recipe¬†as inspiration, but¬†added my own paleo take and made it in a crock-pot, of course!

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, crushed
1-2 spicy peppers, chopped
2 cups chopped tomatoes
3 tablespoons almond butter
2 cups chicken broth (I used beef broth cause that’s all I had & it turned out fine)
2 teaspoons chili powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
4 chicken breasts

For serving:
Fresh cilantro
Lime wedges
Tomatoes, sliced
Cabbage, shredded
1 avocado, peeled, pitted, and sliced


  1. Place a pan over medium heat, add the olive oil, onion and garlic, stirring to soften for 5 minutes. Add the spicy peppers and tomatoes, stirring to combine. Bring to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes.
  2. Carefully pour the mixture into a blender. Add the almond butter, broth, chili powder, and cinnamon. Puree the mixture until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Return the mixture to the pot over medium heat. Cook for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the chocolate and stir until melted.
  4. Place the chicken breasts in a crock pot and add mixture.
  5. Cook on low for 8 hours. 5 hours into cooking, remove lid and use 2 forks to shred chicken the best you can. Do this again 1 hour before cooking time is over.
  6. Transfer the mole to a serving dish and serve with cilantro, lime, avocado, tomatoes and cabbage.

I’m looking forward to trying these. ¬†The paleo bread will wait until I get some almond flour. ¬†However, I plan on trying the carrot cake bites this week (maybe a birthday treat?) and the chicken mole is on the menu for my next grocery rotation of the next 2 weeks.
