Cheat's Chicken Mole

We've created a quick and easy version of the traditional Mexican dish - a Mole! A mole is traditionally slow cooked with a bunch of herbs, spices and chillis to really capture a depth of flavour but we know this isn't always realistic at home. Our Cheat's Chicken Mole is on the table within 45 minutes and is sure to be your new go-to.
