Chocolate Sauce chicken

Chocolate and chicken! I have had a few comments from people I have mentioned it to.

Many of us love chocolate, and also chicken, so why not combine the two.

The small amount of chocolate I have used, sweetens the sauce slightly with only a very faint hint of a chocolate taste.

If you served this, I do not think guests could guess what the secret ingredient was -the chocolate is very unobtrusive.

And needless to say, it tasted excellent on top of boiled jacket potatoes.

I used less breasts in the mixture of chicken as I find these get a bit dry when baked and I think next time I would not use breasts.

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 55 minutes
Makes: 3 servings

Seasoned flour
4 dried apricots
4 [link pitted prunes]
800 g total -chicken thighs, legs, breasts -skin removed
1½ tbsp [link flour]
¾ - 1 cup chicken stock
10 g chocolate

  • Soak the apricots and prunes in cold water for at least half an hour.
  • Apricots and prunes soaking

  • Set oven at 180°. Drain apricots and prunes.

  • Dry the chicken with paper towel and put seasoned flour in a plastic bag -shake so that all pieces are coated.
  • Do not use too much flour

  • Heat a bit of oil and an equal amount of butter in a frypan and brown chicken pieces in batches.
  • A batch of cooked chicken pieces

  • Continue till all cooked, and set aside, or put directly into an ovenproof dish -I can use my saucepans in the oven also, so I put them on a plate.
  • All chicken cooked

  • Add the flour to the pan and drippings, and cook stirring for a minute or so. Add the stock gradually stirring with each addition to get rid of the lumps.

  • Now add your piece of chocolate.
  • Adding chocolate

  • Stir till chocolate is melted and mix well.

  • Pour this over the chicken pieces.
  • Chocolate sauce poured over chicken pieces

  • Put the drained apricots and prunes over.
  • Ready to bake

  • Bake, covered for about 40 - 45 minutes.
  • Cooked chicken with chocolate

  • Meanwhile cook the potatos in the jackets (I boiled them), and cut up before putting the chicken on top.
