Directions:

1

Wash chicken legs and set aside.

2

Preheat skillet over medium high heat until hot.

3

Add 1/2 cup Olive Oil to skillet and let heat (approx 1 minute)

4

Add chicken to the oil.

5

Cook for 5 minutes, then flip chicken over.

6

Cook another 5 minutes, flipping once.

7

Continue to cook chicken for a total of 25-30 minutes until chicken is thoroughly cooked, flipping occasionally to ensure it's evenly browned.

8

Sprinkle with fresh rosemary, oregano, salt & pepper to taste.

9

Flip once more and reduce heat to low.

10

For the Mole:

11

In a heavy large saucepan, heat the oil over medium heat.

12

Add the onions, season with a little salt and saute 3 minutes, or until translucent.

13

Then add the minced garlic and cook 2 minutes more.

14

Transfer onion and garlic mixture to blender with all remaining mole ingredients (except for the chocolate and chicken) and blend until very smooth.

15

Transfer the sauce to a medium saute pan and bring to boil over high heat.

16

Reduce the heat to medium, cover and simmer 20 minutes.

17

Stir in the chocolate.

18

Season the mole with salt and pepper to taste.

19

Transfer chicken to serving dish and pour mole sauce over each leg, leaving some for a side dish that guests can use as they prefer.

Cooks' note:
This is a great gluten and dairy free Mole sauce that's kid approved, but if you would like to add the typical mole heat, add 5 dried pasilla chiles, (or dried ancho chiles) stemmed and seeded to the sauce. If using them, be sure to reconstitute the dried chiles by soaking them in 1 1/2 cups hot water for 15 minutes, then drain and set aside, adding them to the blender with other ingredients.

Delicious way to use your ripe bananas in a tasty breakfast treat! This was just a basic pancake recipe, but since the bananas were too ripe to slice into the batter, I mashed them. Since the recipe is gluten free, special attention is needed during the cooking process. Gluten free pancake batter does not bubble so watch the edges to determine when to flip the pancake.

I love this moist, light flavor packed carrot cake especially since it is gluten and dairy free. I am not sure where this original recipe came from, it is just one my grand mom had handwritten in her collection of recipes (and she was a fantastic cook).
