We eat a lot of chicken. I love it grilled, roasted, pan fried, deep fried, and simply boiled in aromatics. With that said, I can easy get bored with the same seasonings that I add to my chicken. Because of this I have become more adventures in an effort to ward off boredom and to spice things up. Today’s Pomegranate Chicken is a direct result of my adventures in the kitchen where I experiment.
A few years ago I posted a Thanksgiving turkey recipe that I had brined in pomegranate juice. I decided to do something similar with my chicken. I have to give you a full disclaimer though, the Sous Chef and I have a bit of a difference in opinion about the cooking method of this recipe. So I am going to include both and let you tell me which you like best.
- 10 chicken pieces, thighs and legs
- 2 cups fresh squeezed pomegranate juice
- 4-5 bay leaves
- 2 garlic cloves
- 10 peppercorns
- 1 tbsp salt
- cooking spray
