In This Recipe
Add the chicken to a roasting pan (I used a glass pan). Pour the vinegar over the chicken, then drizzle the oil over the chicken. Sprinkle the cinnamon and paprika on, then spread the Mole' sauce evenly over each piece. Top with the chives. Cover and marinade over night.
After marinating, cover the pan with aluminum foil. Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 90 minutes.
When the chicken has about 25 minutes left, add the rice and chicken broth to a pan, bring to a boil, then turn the heat down to a low and cover. Simmer for 20 minutes or until the rice is fully cooked. Remove from heat, fluff with a fork, add the chopped cilantro.
Serve the chicken over the rice, top with more fresh cilantro if desired.
Serving suggestion: top with Caramelized Onions; serve with a side salad of Mesclun topped with Goat Cheese and sliced pears in a vinaigrette.
Cooking options: cook the chicken in a slow cooker or grill outside.
