pomegranate-glazed chicken – everyday food challenge

About a month or so ago, I received an email from POM Wonderful, asking if I’d like to sample their 100% pomegranate juice. At the same time I remembered that Everyday Food magazine had featured this amazing juice back in its December 2006 issue in the “Have You Tried?” section. That’s were I found the recipe for Pomegranate-Glazed Chicken. I served the chicken for our 10th anniversary dinner last night. The chicken was amazing, but the real star of the dish was that deliciously sweet and tart glaze. T0 make the glaze I reduced two cups of pomegranate juice and one cup of orange juice with 3 smashed cloves of garlic, a teaspoon of dried rosemary and a pinch each of salt and pepper. It takes a little over 15 minutes on high heat to reduce to about half a cup. After straining the reduced glaze you add two teaspoons of red-wine vinegar.

While the chicken breasts are baking in the oven, you glaze with the sauce about every five minutes. The final result is a very moist chicken with a crisp flavorful skin. I reserved about half of the sauce to serve on the side with chicken. I know that I’ll be making this pomegranate glaze again. I think that it might make an excellent glaze on broiled salmon.
