Mole in the Slow Cooker
This time, instead of boiling the chicken thighs and simmering the Mole Sauce on the stove, I decided to make the Mole and then put it in the slow cooker to go all day. I really preferred this cooking method as it was so much easier. I feel like the sauce also got deeper and richer, and the chicken had better flavor it in by letting them cook together all day.
I unfortunately made the same mistake this time with the Mole Sauce as I did last time... I forgot to strain it before I put it in the Slow Cooker with the chicken, so it came out grainy again. Last time we did this, we went out to the store and found a really nice, high quality strainer for just this purpose, and I somehow still forgot to do this step. Will definitely have to remember to do it next time.
