      • 50 g lard

      Rectify seasoning.
      Heat the lard in a pan or saucepan and pour the mole to fry. Mix very well so it takes an even darker color. Add Sal Ahumada Original SMP if necessary. Set aside.

      For the chichen:

      Spread mustard in the chicken pieces and season with Rub de La Costa SMP. Cook the chicken with the skin upwards over the grill on indirect heat at 350° F.
      After around 45 minutes, verify internal temperature in the thickest part of the chicken, in this case, the breast. 
      When the internal temperature is 160° F, the chicken is ready. 

      For serving:

      Remove the chicken from the grill and let it sit inside a platter for about 10 min.
      Put the chicken pieces on a plate and add the mole.
