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!

Lo - Nov 04, 2019

Not my fave, also if your cooking breast fillets it will take longer than ten minutes poaching x

Sam - Nov 04, 2019

Nice but would have preferred some proper salad in the burger. Loved the sweet potato fries.

Claire - Nov 04, 2019

We love this

Natascha - Nov 03, 2019

Tasty but a total pain to cook, so much equipment and paving the chicken took much longer than the recipe suggested

Racheal - Nov 02, 2019

Absolutely delicious!

Caroline - Oct 31, 2019

Really tasty

Safina - Oct 30, 2019

The chicken burger itself was great didnt have to use carrots etc to create the coleslaw and was perfect just as a sauce on burger. However next time cooking i.would say pre boil the potatoes before cooking :) x

Craig - Oct 30, 2019

Nice dish

Sue - Oct 29, 2019

Fantastic flavourings...one of our favourites so far.

Michelle - Oct 29, 2019

Love it

Kellie - Oct 28, 2019

Not my favourite bit bland

Gary - Oct 27, 2019

Tasty, the pulled chicken could have done with slightly more flavour, but still good

Laura - Oct 25, 2019

Amazing as always

Kari - Oct 25, 2019

Most disappointing Simply Cook meal I’ve had. There was so little flavour. And some of the amounts in the shopping list were too vague to be useful owing to differences in produce sizes. I ended up making enough coleslaw for at least four people.

Rachel - Oct 24, 2019

This meal was gorgeous!!

Ian - Oct 23, 2019

Very tasty
