Cooking Is Dandy with Sandy — MOLE

26 Aug

YAY!! TGIF & every Friday is another edition of “Cooking is Dandy with ME–Sandy!”

I’d like to start off by apologizing for the presentation…foam plates aren’t all that great to look at. But it does cut down on dish duty when you’re not feeling up to it after a long day 🙂

This week’s recipe is mole! Mmmmm

It doesn’t look that appealing, but it tastes great when made right…otherwise the flavor can be overwhelming 😦


Servings: 4-6


  • 2 lb chicken drumsticks
  • 9-12 oz container mole sauce (any brand works, I used Dona Maria since it’s really cheap, about 50¢-$1)
  • 1/4 onion
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 TBSP salt
  • 1 TBSP vegetable oil



  • stew pot
  • large spoon
  • cutting board
  • knife
  • pan



  1. Set your stove on medium heat
  2. Add the chicken drumsticks, salt, onion & garlic into the pot
  3. Add enough water to the pot to cover the chicken
  4. Place on stove and cook for 30 min (or until chicken is cooked all the way through)
  5. Set pot of chicken aside and place your pan on the stove
  6. Add your vegetable oil to the pan and allow it to warm up
  7. Add all the mole sauce and 1 cup of the broth (from the chicken you just cooked) to the pan
  8. Stir your mole and allow to cook for 5 min on medium heat
  9. Add the cooked chicken drumsticks to your pan with mole and allow to cook for an additional 5 min
  10. Make sure all your drumsticks are completely covered in the mole sauce
  11. Turn stove off
  12. Plate your chicken mole


Easy Peasy! I usually allow my chicken broth to cool down then put it in a large freezer bag and freeze it to use for other recipes. Mole tastes great with Spanish rice and frijoles de la olla (homemade pinto beans) and tortillas…Mmmm, really yummy all together!!
