Chicken Breasts With Green Tomatillo Mole

Serves 6

Here you can make the chicken stock that you'll need for the mole from thechicken breasts that you'll use for the mole. This is easy and fairly quick as moles go.

Ingredients

1 small onion, diced
1/2 teaspoon salt or more or less to taste
3 large chicken breasts, halved (about 3 1/4 pounds total), skin removed
6 cups water or chicken stock, approximately
1 recipe Green Tomatillo Mole (recipe follows) cilantro sprigs and radishes for garnish

Instructions

Combine the onion, salt, chicken breasts, and water or stock in a stockpot and bring to a boil. Skim off any foam that rises, reduce the heat, and simmer, partially covered, for 12 minutes, until the chicken breasts are just about cooked through. Remove from the broth and set aside. Strain the broth and use in the mole recipe if desired.

Just before serving, bring the mole to a simmer and add the chicken breasts. Heat through for a few minutes. Spoon a little sauce onto plates or a platter and transfer the chicken breasts to the platter or plates. Spoon the remaining sauce over the chicken and garnish with cilantro and radishes.

Alternative Method: You can also prepare the chicken by cooking it directly in the sauce. If you already have chicken stock on hand for the mole, this method is a good one. Omit the onion and salt from the recipe and brown the chicken pieces in 1 tablespoon oil for a few minutes on each side. Dry on paper towels. About 20 minutes before serving, bring the sauce to a simmer and add the chicken pieces. Cook for 15 minutes in the sauce, untildone, and proceed as above.

Advance Preparation: Both the sauce and the chicken will hold for a day in the refrigerator. Keep the meat and the sauce in separate containers.

For a Crowd: If you're making this recipe for a crowd, multiply by the correct factor, but see the mole sauce recipe for the chicken stock amounts. Finish or cook the chicken in the sauce as directed. Once the chicken is cooked, transfer it to an oval casserole, cover partially with the sauce, and reheat in a low oven just before serving. Have the remaining sauce simmering on top of the stove and spoon over the chicken just before serving.

Green Tomatillo Mole

Serves 6 (About 3 Cups Sauce)

This recipe is based on Rick Bayless's recipe for Green Pumpkinseed Mole with Chicken Breasts (Authentic Mexican, Morrow, 1987). I love the tangy flavor of tomatillos, which show up frequently in supermarkets all over the country; canned tomatillos will work if fresh ones aren't available. If hulled pumpkin seeds (pepitas) aren't available, as they're not to me, substitute pine nuts. You can't pulverize them in a spice mill, however, as you would pepitas, because they'll turn to butter. So I blend them in the blender with stock, then strain the mixture. I've made this with both chicken breasts and rabbit. Once I served Rabbit with Mole Two Ways. Each plate had one piece of meat with dark brown Mole Poblano and one piece with this green sauce. The two sauces went well together, and the plates looked beautiful. I've also made the same combination with chicken breasts.

Ingredients

3 ounces hulled raw pumpkin seeds or pine nuts
3 cups chicken stock or more if needed
1/4 pound (8 medium) tomatillos, husked and washed, or 1 1/2 13-ounce cans tomatillos, drained
2 to 3 fresh hot green chilies (jalapenos or serranos), to taste, stems, seeds, and membranes removed
1/2 medium onion, roughly chopped
3 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
4 or 5 cilantro sprigs
1/4 teaspoon cumin seeds or ground cumin
3/4 inch cinnamon stick or 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 cloves or a pinch of ground
5 large romaine or leaf lettuce leaves, washed
salt to taste (about 1/2 teaspoon)
1 tablespoon safflower or sunflower oil

Instructions

Toast the seeds in a dry frying pan, shaking the pan or stirring constantly until they are browned and toasty (for pine nuts) or until they have browned and popped (for pumpkin seeds). Remove from the heat and transfer to a blender jar if you're using pine nuts or to a bowl if you're using pumpkin seeds. If you're using pine nuts, blend with 1 cup of the stock until smooth, then strain through a medium-mesh strainer. If you're using pumpkin seeds, pulverize in a spice mill in batches and sift into a bowl. Stir in 1 cup of the stock and mix well, Set aside. If you're using fresh tomatillos, simmer in water to cover with the chilies for 10 to 15 minutes. Drain and place in the blender jar. If you're using canned tomatillos, drain and place in the blender jar along with the chilies, Add the onion, garlic, and cilantro. Grind the spices in a spice mill and add to the blender jar, Add the lettuce leaves and salt. Blend until the mixture is smooth.

Heat the oil in a heavy-bottomed saucepan or casserole over medium heat. Add the nut or seed mixture and cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens, about 5 minutes. Add the tomatillo mixture and cook again, stirring for about 5 to 10 minutes, until the mixture is thick. Stir in the remaining 2 cups chicken stock, bring to a simmer, cover partially, and simmer for 30 minutes. Taste and correct seasonings. If the mixture seems too thick, stir in a little more chicken stock.

Advance Preparation: This sauce will hold for a day, in or out of the refrigerator.

For a Crowd: Multiply all the ingredients except the chicken stock by the proper factor. Add half the multiplied quantity of chicken stock, and if the mixture seems too thick, continue to add more until the desired thickness is reached. The mole thins out too much with the addition of too much stock.
