This time I have a special combination with Mexican roots.  Chicken, chocolate, wine, cinnamon, raisons, all into one dish and surprisingly delicious. The recipe was created by Chakall, a well known Argentine cook living in Berlin, even in the same building as me.

Ingredients (for 4 persons):

  • 4 chicken fillets
  • 2 tablespoons of flower
  • half a teaspoon of cinnamon
  • a bit of salt
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 3 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 red onion
  • 2 red peppers
  • 100 ml red wine
  • 200 ml chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons sugar candy
  • 50 ml cream
  • 2 tablespoons raisins
  • 2 tablespoons almond discs
  • Coriander to garnish


  • Cut the onions and peppers finely .
  • Coat the chicken with the flour, cinnamon, salt . In the movie Chakall shows a very interesting way to do this with a freezer bag.
  • Melt the butter with a tablespoon of olive oil in a pan and fry the chicken fillets for two minutes . Later, we will put them in the oven.
  • Add the onions and peppers with a little extra olive oil to the hot pan and cook a few minutes .
  • Add the red wine and let it boil for a while.
  • Then add successively the chicken broth, tomato paste , cocoa powder and sugar. Stir well.
  • Then add the cream, the raisins and the almonds to it at the end .
  • Preheat the oven to 200 ° C.
  • Place the chicken , topped with the bulk of the sauce into an ovenproof dish and cook for 10 minutes in the oven .
  • Put the chicken on plates, garnish with the remaining sauce and chopped cilantro .

In the picture I have also added some crushed hazelnut used for finishing .
