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 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. Bring a non-stick saucepan half-filled with water to the boil, then turn it down to a medium low simmer, and put the chicken in the pan to gently poach for 10 mins. Meanwhile, toss the sweet potatoes with 1 tbsp of oil and the Mexican Seasoning on a baking tray and cook in the oven for 20 mins. Next, get started with step 2.

  • 2.

    Mix half of the Chipotle Paste with the mayonnaise in a salad bowl. Try it and add more mayo if it's too spicy or add more Chipotle Paste for more heat. Next mix the cabbage and carrots into the dressing and keep aside.

  • 3.

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

  • 4.

    When the fries are almost done, halve the buns and warm them in the oven. Then fill the buns with your pulled chicken and add some chipotle slaw on top. Serve with the wedges and some extra slaw on the side.

Jean - Sep 01, 2018

This dish was absolutely beautiful. The chicken was cooked perfectly, The slaw was so different to my usual coleslaw I make, I combined the two on my heated brioche roll, added the sweet potato chips to my plate and I had a meal to be proud of.

Very nice and easy to make kids love it

Charlotte - Aug 28, 2018

Family enjoyed it

Louise - Aug 24, 2018

Loved this. A little time consuming than some of the other recipes but still great. To those that think there is too much flavour in these pots you need to add less and taste more - try half first and add more if necessary.

Tracey - Aug 22, 2018


Richard - Aug 19, 2018

Excellent, really good meal

Caroline - Aug 16, 2018

Delicious and different. However felt there was something missing from chicken, maybe onions? Coleslaw was lovely, we added some apple too.

Sian - Aug 12, 2018

This was a very tasty dish . The chicken needed longer than 10 mins to poach though and wasn’t so keen on the seasoning for the sweet potato chips. Cal slaw was delicious . Would probably cook this again

Delicious once again Could be served at a family BBQ very easily
