Easy Mole Chicken Drumsticks is my recipe of the day with the Choctoberfest blogging  group,  Which  includes  a giveaway for a KitchenAid  mixer over and above  all the  delicious recipes.

I love making easy chicken  dinners.  Besides that, the sauce is great for chocolate lovers  in an unexpected  way.  You will love this on  rice, with black beans, or inside tortillas.
