    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!
