My Magical Mud Cocoa Mix

Being a stay at home pastor (Google the derivation of the word, pastor, to get that joke), one of my responsibilities is cooking. I would like to share one of my recipes that I've created.
The magical mud cocoa mix is based upon two recipes: Cocoa Spice Dry Rub Chicken and Chicken With Cocoa Rub

In the upcoming weeks, I will show you how to use the magical mud cocoa mix in multiple ways.  The simplest recipe is take 1 tablespoon of the mix and add 2 tablespoons of flour, and mix together in a ziplock bag. Then add the meat and shake it until the meat is coated with the mixture. Sauté in a pan until meat is cooked. Take out the meat. Then deglaze the pan with a fruity wine or fruit juice.  Serve the sauce on the top of the meat. Simple and elegant.
