Chocolate Isn’t Just Candy Anymore

There are so many ways to use chocolate. It is no longer exclusive for desserts or candies, it is a wonderful way to bring a new life to your meals as well. This recipe calls for crème fraiche, but it can be substituted with sour cream (I have done this with crème fraiche in many other recipes).
chicken Mole Poblano 2
Chicken in Chocolate Sauce
4 chicken breasts (if you're going to cook for more than 1 person)
4 tbsp. flour
2 tsp. cinnamon
2 tsp. olive oil
1 onion
3 tsp. dark cocoa powder
2 tsp. brown sugar
2 tsp. tomato puree
1/4 c. chicken stock
1 tbsp. crème fraiche
Lightly flour the meat, then sauté for about 10 minutes in olive oil. Put to one side.  Make stock in a saucepan, remove from heat once boiled, then add tomato puree.  Peel and chop onion, then brown in same pan as chicken. Sprinkle with cocoa powder, sugar and cinnamon.  Add chicken stock and chicken breasts, leave to cook over a low heat for about 20 minutes.  Add crème fraiche and leave sauce to thicken for a couple of minutes over a low heat. 
Serve immediately, with rice.

My daughter and I were just looking at some recipes with chocolate in them. I am still trying to wrap my head around the idea that chocolate isn't just for desserts. Your recipe looks great!
