Chicken With Tomato Chocolate Sauce - Mole Style

“Some of the typical ingredients for original mole sauce are difficult to get here. Today I came up with this, and it turned out a pretty good adaptation of the real thing. For the harissa, you can use piri-piri, sambal olek or whatever kind of chili preparation you like.”
