Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

In a small bowl toss chicken breast halves with 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon of the Southwest Essence and 1 tablespoon olive oil to coat evenly. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.

In a large non-stick skillet over high heat sear the chicken breasts until golden brown on both sides, about 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer skillet to oven and continue to cook for 5 to 7 minutes, until cooked through but still tender and juicy.

In a small saucepan over high heat, combine the Green Mole Sauce, chicken stock, and heavy cream and bring to a boil. Continue to cook over high heat for 2 minutes, then serve immediately. Serve chicken breasts on plates with 1/4 cup of the mole cream sauce, then drizzle with the tamarind glaze.

For the Tamarind Glaze Sauce: In the bowl of a food processor or blender combine the tamarind paste, garlic, syrup, molasses, ketchup, water, pepper and 1 tablespoon of the Southwest Essence until smooth. Transfer to a small bowl until ready to serve. (Makes 1 cup)
