    1. Heat the oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat, add onion and cook until tender. Mix in cocoa powder, cumin, coriander and garlic. Stir in the tomatoes and jalapeños. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 10 minutes. Pour directly over chicken and serve.

    Tip:

    You can use fresh green chillies instead of jarred jalapeños, if you prefer.

    mmmmm! This was so easy to make, delicious and something different. I used the sauce to make enchiladas with leftover roast chicken. - 03 Oct 2012
