Chocolate chicken. Seriously.

I have been wanting to try this dish forever. It's been so long since I first heard about it, I can't even remember where I heard about it.l And today I took the plunge.

Chocolate Chicken.
2 chicken breasts
1 tablespoon of cocoa
1 teaspoon of ground cumin
1 teaspoon of ground coriander
0.5 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 cloves of garlic, crushed
2 tablespoon lime juice
2 tablespoons water

Preheat oven to 180C. Blend all ingredients until a runny but thick sauce is formed. Place chicken in an ovenproof dish and paint with the chocolate sauce. Bake for about an hour.

We had them sliced on top of home made mini tortillas with roasted capsicum strips. I am SO glad I tried this. It was utterly awesome. The kids were intrigued that I could dare serve up chocolate chicken!!! But ate it nonetheless. It will definitely make it's way into my work-in-progress menu plan as a summer dish as I can see it working really well with salad.

I've been an absolutely lazy blogger of late. I have excuses though!!! I have had several orders through my store which I have been churning out as quickly as I possibly can, as well as finally getting some sewing for my kids done, a little Xmas shopping and organising Torin's 7th birthday which is this coming Saturday. So once I stop running about like a headless chicken, I will try and be a better blogger.

NO WAY! Hmmm gotta get my head around the chocolate and chicken thing before I'm game enough to try it I think.... am such a 'fraidy-cat cook.

Honestly it's not scary at all. The chocolate acts as a spice and works to neutralise and smooth out the heat of the Cayenne.

Love it!
