Pomegranate Series Part II: Molasses Glazed Chicken

September 13, 2017

In PART I  of my pomegranate molasses series, I shared with you my recipe for a quick and easy vegan bulgur pilaf with pomegranate molasses dressing. While that can be a main dish for most vegans, I know the carnivores be asking me: “Where the protein at?”  Thankfully the protein is just as quick and easy to prepare as the grains–Pomegranate Molasses Glazed Chicken is life:

This glaze almost has a teriyaki flavor, without all of the excess sugar plus a heavy dose of anti-oxidants from the pomegranate! This is one of my favorite go-to meals on a weekday night, as well as a great dish for entertaining. The chicken is fork tender, sweet and a little tart, with a new ingredient in culinary circles: black garlic. Black garlic is garlic that has been fermented, retaining all of the sweetness and ditching all the pungency. The texture is so silky, rich and decadent you can spread it on toasted bread and crackers with a drizzle of olive oil. The flavor is a cross between truffle mushrooms, caramel, and dates.

Just a reminder that if you don’t have a middle eastern market in your neighborhood, one of my favorite online stores for ingredients is Sadaf. Sadaf carries excellent quality black garlic, bulgur wheat, pomegranate molasses, sultanas, and a host of other fresh spices, fried fruits and grains.  I did not receive any monetary compensation from them, but they did extend a coupon code to all of my subscribers!
