How to Make Chicken in Pomegranate & Walnut Sauce
- Put chicken in a deep pot and cover with water.
Add a bit of salt and pepper and cook on medium heat
for about 10 minutes, skimming the residue from the top.
Remove chicken, cut into bite-sized pieces.
Reserve the broth which can be used to cook the rice.
Chop and brown the onion.
Mince the garlic and add it to the onion.
Once fragrant and golden, add turmeric, salt and pepper.
Chop walnuts and add to the pan to toast.
Add the pomegranate molasses. I prefer Cortas brand.
Finish with orange zest, cinnamon and sugar.
Lower the heat and allow the sauce to thicken and caramelize.
Adjust the sweetness and tartness to your liking by adding more brown sugar and/or pomegranate syrup.
Add the chicken to the sauce and finish cooking it on really low heat.
Serve with fluffy basmati rice and a crisp green salad.
