Directions

1. Toast sesame seeds in a wide nonstick frying pan over medium heat until golden (about 4 minutes), stirring often. Transfer to a bowl; set aside.
2. To pan, add onion, garlic, banana, prunes, raisins, peanut butter, and 3 tablespoons (45 ml) water. Cook over medium heat, stirring often, until mixture is richly browned (10 to 15 minutes); if pan appears dry, add more water, 1 tablespoon (15 ml) at a time. Stir in cocoa, chili powder, sugar, cinnamon, coriander, cumin, cloves, anise seeds, and 3/4 cup (180 ml) of the broth. Bring mixture to a boil over medium-high heat.
3. Transfer hot onion mixture to a food processor or blender and add tomato paste, 2 teaspoons of the sesame seeds, and a little of the remaining broth. Whirl until smoothly pureed; then stir in remaining broth. Cover and keep warm. (At this point, you may let cool; then cover and refrigerate for up to 3 days; freeze for longer storage. Reheat before continuing.)
4. While onion mixture is browning, rinse chicken and pat dry. Place jelly in a bowl and stir to soften; add chicken and mix to coat. Then place chicken in a lightly oiled 10- by 15-inch (25- by 38-cm) rimmed baking pan. Bake in a 450°F (230°C) oven until meat in thickest part is no longer pink; cut to test (12 to 15 minutes)
