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!

Our 25 minute recipe

  • 1.

    Heat the oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7 and then bring a non-stick pan of water to the boil for the chicken. Put the chicken thighs in the pan to poach for 10 mins over a medium heat. Meanwhile, toss the sweet potatoes with 1 tbsp of oil and the Mexican Seasoning on a baking tray and roast for 20 mins.

  • 2.

    Meanwhile, put half of the Chipotle Paste into a salad bowl with the mayonnaise and stir well. Taste it, and if it’s too spicy, add some more mayonnaise, or if you want it spicier, add more Chipotle Paste. Then add the cabbage and carrots, mix well and put aside.

  • 3.

    When just cooked, remove the chicken from the pan and put on a chopping board. Pour away the water. Use two forks to "pull" the chicken thighs apart, roughly shredding them. Return the pan to the hob and heat 1 tbsp olive oil over a medium heat. Add the Mole Sauce, stir quickly, and then add the shredded chicken. Stir-fry for 2 mins and then add 50ml water to loosen the sauce. Then stir occasionally for 2-3 mins, or until the water has mostly been absorbed, then turn off the heat.

  • 4.

    When the potatoes are almost done, halve the buns and place them in the oven to warm up (cut side facing up). Assemble your bun by putting your pulled chicken mixture in and adding some chipotle slaw on top. Serve with the sweet potato wedges with extra slaw on the side.

Didnt really find it that tasty although the kids enjoyed it.dont think I would pick this one again.

Diane - Sep 21, 2018

Delicious- this is the second time I’ve made this recipe and it didn’t disappoint. I used chicken breast instead of thighs and the meat was juicy and tender. This will be on my list again!

Jessica - Sep 20, 2018


Gareth - Sep 19, 2018

The pulled chicken was a bit bland along with the slaw the sweet potato saved the meal rather disappointed with the meal really

Justin - Sep 16, 2018

A bit difficult to make first time round, but overall very tasty (however ensure you have a big enough bun for all the chicken!)

Natasha - Sep 15, 2018

Burger was great, slaw was a bit bland and the sweet potato fries were okay

Simon - Sep 12, 2018

One of my favourites

haidee - Sep 12, 2018

Was ok, not much flavour from the chicken, i added a squeeze of BBQ sauce to mine. Sweet potato fries were delicious and so was coleslaw, although the amount of coleslaw it makes is way too much

Amy - Sep 11, 2018


Philip - Sep 10, 2018

Really nice would order this again but would swop the sweet potatoes for normal potato wedges, just a bit too sweet for us

Terri - Sep 10, 2018

My favourite, I keep ordering this one

Tess - Sep 08, 2018

Not the best meal I have tried. A bit of faffing about for not much flavour. The coleslaw was nice but the chicken was a little boring and didn’t really blend as well as I would have thought with the rest of the components of the meal.
