Mole Chicken

Whenever I go to a Mexican restaurant, for some reason I'm always a bit nervous to order anything with the mole sauce. I'm not sure why, but I think it's mostly because I've never tried it. Now that I've made it myself, I know it's not that bad! It has pretty good flavor and is really easy to put together.
