Serve this green mole sauce over chicken legs, or any chicken pieces you have available, for a quick and delicious meal. This creamy mole is quick to prepare and uses tomatillos, chiles, lettuce, cilantro and parsley, which is where all the green color comes from.


Step 1

Place chicken legs in a large pot with enough water to cover; boil for about 15 minutes or until cooked through. Set aside. Reserve broth.

Step 2

Place tomatillos, chiles, onion, lettuce, cilantro, parsley, garlic and pepper in blender; cover. Blend until smooth.

Step 3

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Carefully add tomatillo mixture; stir. Cook for 5 minutes.

Step 4

Place pepitas, evaporated milk, 1 cup reserved broth from cooking chicken and bouillon in blender; cover. Blend until smooth.

Step 5

Add pepita mixture to skillet; cook, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes.

Step 6

Place chicken on a serving plate; cover with about ¾ cup sauce. Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds and serve.

Cook's Tip:

To roast the sesame seeds, place them in a pan. Cook, shaking pan until golden brown. Shake constantly to avoid burning.
