Another Mole

A while back I made a mole using turkey tenderloins. I decided to try anther version and use chicken breasts this time. I think I may like this one better than the other and this was super super easy to make. I served it over shredded iceberg lettuce but it would be very tasty over rice.

2 large chicken breasts cut into tenders-salt and peppered
1 onion, chopped
1 green bell pepper chopped
2 cloves garlic minced
2 T chili powder
1/2 t cinnamon
1 14 oz can diced tomatoes
2 T peanut butter
2 T unsweetened cocoa powder
2 scallions, chopped

In large skillet (with lid), heat some olive oil and sauté the chicken for about 8 minutes-turning once. Remove chicken. Add a bit more oil and sauté onion, green pepper, and garlic for about 5 minutes or so. Add chili powder and cinnamon. Add chicken back in--stir in the tomatoes with juice, peanut butter and cocoa powder and maybe a half can of extra water. Bring that to a boil, then cover and simmer for 25 minutes. Stir every so often. Serve over lettuce or rice and garnished with scallions (which I forgot to do!)
