READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Chef mariajane

Once you have discovered the joy of cooking with the flavor of pomegranate, you will be just delighted!! If you are anything like I was, I tried it with just about everything!! I just love pomegranates, I even keep a good supply on hand in my freezer, so I always have them when I want them. This recipe is so delicious, another way to serve chicken, and served with rice, is just an absolutely delicious meal!!

I'm just rating on the glaze, because we just served this over chicken and jasmine rice. This was good, but not quite what I was expecting. The pomegranate flavor was not as pronounced as I had hoped it would be. I found the garlic to be overpowering in the glaze. If I make this again, I will saute the garlic with the chicken, rather than throwing it in with the glaze, because it was pretty raw and crunchy. Thanks for sharing this!
