Mexican mole negro gave us the idea to combine cocoa and chilies to make a seasoning paste for roasted chicken. Chipotle chilies in adobo sauce lend their earthy, smoky heat and tomatoey tang, and brown sugar and lime round out the flavors. The toasted almonds sprinkled on top before serving are a nod to the nuts used to make mole negro. For easy cleanup, line the baking sheet with foil.

Great, complex dish
Sweet, sour and some heat. Slashing really helps get the flavors into the chicken. Made along with roasted vegetables that I also did at 450.

Love BBQ
I followed recipe exactly and I loved the ease of prep but importantly , I thoroughly enjoyed the flavor and crisp juiciness of the chicken. Just the right amount of heat. Quodo’s and thank you

Would applying the rub/paste an hour or more in advance be a mistake?

Hi Charles -

Yes. The lime juice and salt in the rub would negatively affect the texture of the meat. We wouldn't recommend longer than 15-20 minutes.

Best,
