Mexican Pulled Chicken4.4/5 (BASED ON 3125 reviews)
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
Heat the oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7.
Half fill a pan with boiling water. Add the chicken and cook (poach) over a medium-low heat for 10 mins.
Meanwhile, toss the sweet potatoes with some oil and the MEXICAN SEASONING on a baking tray and cook in the oven for 20 mins. Meanwhile start step 2.
Prep the slaw
Add the CHIPOTLE PASTE (to taste) to the mayonnaise, then add the cabbage and carrots.
Make the pulled chicken
When just cooked, remove the chicken and use two forks to shred it on a board.
Empty the pan and reheat it with a little oil. Fry the MOLE SAUCE gently, then add the shredded chicken and stir fry for 2 mins. Add 50ml water then stir for 2 mins, or until the water is absorbed.
Warm the buns in the oven, then fill them with "pulled" chicken and some chipotle slaw. Serve with wedges and extra slaw on the side.

I didn’t see think this was going to be a hit - but it was lovely and I will definitely order again
Charlotte - Nov 10, 2018
Very tasty, but probably enough for 4 rather than 2. Buy extra brioche buns!!
Scott - Nov 10, 2018
A trick for the slaw. When you've made the sauce.... Cut some of the savoy and some Carrot then add abit at a time. They way you will make enough veg and still be saucey.
Stephanie - Nov 10, 2018
Takes a while, tastes okay.
