Mole (pronounced mo-leh) from Puebla, Mexico is traditionally a deep, rich flavoured one-pot with ancho chilli, chipotle and chocolate, which gives the sauce its dark colour. Our quick version of tender pulled chicken takes inspiration from the Mole sauce, making for a tasty burger  filling. The chipotle slaw adds crunch and colour to the toasted brioche bun and the paprika sweet potato fries tie it all together nicely!

A definite summer special

Anna - Apr 23, 2019

This was absolutely delicious, couldn’t be bothered making the coleslaw but adding the chipotle seasoning to a store bought cheese coleslaw just finished the whole thing off, it was amazing.

Kids big and small love it

Amy - Apr 22, 2019

Lovely flavours... great on a summers day

susan - Apr 21, 2019

my favourite simply cook meal so far. Have reordered this in my next box as i can't wait to have it again. I am considering adding some grated apple and red onion to the slaw next time though although it was perfect as it was.

Jayne - Apr 18, 2019

Michelle - Apr 17, 2019

Not enough flavour on the chips maybe i done to many but was nice

Louise - Apr 17, 2019

Enjoyed wedges and slaw but felt the chicken needed more sauce . . . . Partner loved it though so could be I’m just the fussy one out of the pair lol

Antony - Apr 13, 2019

Had this one before, a good after work quick tasty meal

Nichola - Apr 12, 2019

It was nice but I used more chicken so weakened the flavour a little

Louise - Apr 10, 2019

Very filling

Victoria - Apr 09, 2019

This recipe was average. It was all nice, but nothing really stood out. Using brioche buns hid some of the flavours too I think so I'd just use plain buns if I made this again.

Amazing

tracey - Apr 04, 2019

Amanda - Apr 04, 2019

Tasted so good

helen - Apr 04, 2019

I made this with jack fruit instead of chicken and it was delicious!

Tehlia - Apr 03, 2019

Bit plain n boring

Ali - Apr 02, 2019

Quick and easy to make. I used normal potatoes instead of sweet potatoes and cooked them for a bit longer.

Sandra - Apr 01, 2019

This was ok...I think the pulled chicken could be more flavoursome, it was a little dull. There was enough coleslaw to feed an army, the required quantities need to be significantly reduced. Also it was sloppy, do less mayo required

Tom - Apr 01, 2019

Great recipe, great to have a ‘burger’ that feel healthy to put in your body.

Brittany - Mar 28, 2019

Really super tasty dish! I did a mix of potato and sweet potato and did it on little brioche rolls- delicious!

Sam - Mar 28, 2019

Can get a bit messy. Really juicy flavours.

Katherine - Mar 27, 2019

Tasty but not as tasty as I expected. Plus, I weighed and measured all the ingredients, did the maths and it was WAY over the calories stated, even though I used chicken breasts instead of thighs. Giving some weights in the recipe for the sweet potatoes, cabbage, carrots etc would be useful, given how these things vary in size, as would measurements for the oil.
