This sauce is spectacular baked on top of cheese enchiladas for those of you who prefer to eat vegetarian. Serve with Mexican brown rice, fresh avocado and a green salad with lime dressing



Cut chicken into parts. Save the back for making chicken stock. Place parts in a 9-by 13-inch baking dish. Put breasts and thighs bone-side up. Preheat oven to 350° F.

Heat oil in a 12-inch skillet or heavy saucepan over medium heat. Add onions and salt and cook until onions have softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in garlic, chili powder, cumin, cinnamon, cayenne and sugar. Cook for 15 to 30 seconds until fragrant. Stir in tomato sauce and water and bring to a simmer. Add chocolate and stir until melted. Let sauce simmer for about 5 minutes. Taste and adjust seasonings, if needed.

Pour sauce over chicken. Cover pan and bake for 1 hour.
