Chicken Mole Casserole Recipe

The key to a good mole is its rich, brown sauce with a hint of chocolate. The cocoa in this recipe lends richness without sweetness. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen

"This was a quick and easy mole dish that, although was a bit spicy (as a mole should be) my two small kids wolfed down! The sweetness of the corn paired with the fluffy biscuits were just enough to calm down the fire of the mole sauce. Very very good!"
