Done the traditional way, this Mexican dish can take an entire day to prepare, but here we've trimmed the cooking time down to just 20 minutes. (Shape magazine 10-05)
1. Prepare instant brown rice according to package directions.
2. Heat a nonstick frying pan on medium, coat with cooking spray and add chicken pieces. Cook until light brown, remove and set aside. Set aside frying pan. (Do not wash).
3. Coat a microwave-safe bowl with nonstick cooking spray and add onion and garlic. Cover with plastic wrap and microwave and high for 3 minutes or until onions are soft. Puree onions and remaining ingredients (except bittersweet chocolate and cocoa powder) in a blender to a thick paste, then pour into same frying pan. Heat on low-medium and add cocoa powder and bittersweet chocolate. Simmer, stirring constantly, for 5 minutes. Add chicken and stir, simmering 5 more minutes.
4. To serve, divide rice evenly among 4 dinner plates and top with equal amounts of chicken mole. Garnish with sesame seeds if desired.
