There are very many versions of chocolate chile chicken, but I chose to include this one as it’s fantastically quick and easy to make. I can’t promise it’s authentic, but it does have the wow factor, and the Venezuelan chocolate adds a deep, rich, glossy finish and flavor.

My wife was looking for something different to cook for her girlie dinner party, unfortunately my friends and myself were the Guinea Pigs! This should never be attempted again, there is a lot to be said for take-aways. Needless to say she has decided to do roast chicken and potatoes for her friends (good call)!
I made this dish and thought it was fantastic! The flavors were perfect to me, not too sweet or too orangey as other reviewers have said. I couldn't find Venezuelan chocolate, but I used an 82% dark chocolate and it seemed to work perfectly. I used less than the recipe called for because of what some of the reviews said, but I wish I'd just used the whole bar. This dish may not be for everyone, but if it sounds good to you, I highly recommend making it. My very picky boyfriend with Midwestern "meat and potatoes" taste liked it better than I expected him to, although I doubt he'd request it in the future. But if he didn't hate it, it must have pretty broad appeal!
