Ingredients

How to make it

  • Brown chicken breast strips in oil in a skillet over medium heat for about 5 minutes, or until no longer pink inside. *Note: Chicken breasts cook fast, overcooking may result in a less tender meat. You can leave breasts whole if you wish, just make sure they are cooked through. Remove chicken to a bowl, set aside and keep warm.
  • Add onion and garlic to the same skillet. Use more oil if needed. Saute until onion is soft, for about 4 minutes. Stir in cumin. Cook for another minute.
  • Place the onion mixture in a blender or food processor along with chili, cilantro, parsely,sunflower seeds, broth and rice vinegar. Puree until smooth (mixture may be slightly grainy).
  • Return mixture to skillet. Cover with lid to prevent splattering and simmer for about 10 minutes, or until thickened, stirring occasionally. Stir in lime juice, 1/2 tsp. salt and pepper to taste.
  • Place chicken breasts on a plate, spoon sauce over and garnish with chopped tomatoes. Sprinkle some extra lime juice or salt over tomatoes if desired.

    Wonderful aromatics in this dish, Juels! I'm not a fan of mole, but this is quite different, in a good way :) Definitely lighter and refreshing. ^5

    Love the way this sounds but not a huge fan of Cilantro...Do you think it's doable without it?
