VITACLAY PALEO CHOCOLATE CHICKEN MOLE

VITACLAY PALEO CHOCOLATE CHICKEN MOLE

There's nothing like a good chicken mole--it's one of my favorite dishes at my local Mexican restaurant. 

I love going to the food truck around the corner or the Mexican restaurant down the street--the atmosphere is festive and the food is so amazing! 

But I don't like how expensive it is. For just two of us to get one entree we often walk away $30-$40 poorer, and to me that just seems excessive for one meal. 

And the food is usually not organic or well-sourced. I'm not privy to all of the ingredients they use (and if I were I probably wouldn't eat it)! 

I love cooking at home, especially when I can get great recipes and cook it in VitaClay. 

VitaClay just makes every dish so delicious and tender--I've never had a bad dish out of that pot--I don't know how it works but that clay makes everything taste amazing! 

Here's how you can make your own authentic chicken mole at home in your Personal Chef: VitaClay!
