- 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 1 cup pomegranate juice
- 1/2 cup Pomegranate Honey
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Fresh pomegranate arils for garnish
- Chopped fresh parsley for garnish
Marinate the Chicken: In a bowl, whisk together pomegranate juice, honey, soy sauce, minced garlic, grated ginger, salt, and pepper. Place the chicken breasts in a Ziploc bag and marinate them in half of the prepared mixture for at least 30 minutes.
Preheat and Sear: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Heat a large oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat. Add a bit of oil. Sear the marinated chicken breasts for 2-3 minutes on each side until they develop a golden-brown crust.
Create the Glaze: Pour the remaining marinade over the chicken in the skillet, ensuring each piece is coated. The glaze will intensify the flavors as it reduces.
Bake: Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. The oven cooking ensures that the chicken remains juicy while allowing the glaze to caramelize.
Garnish and Serve: Once cooked, garnish the chicken with fresh pomegranate arils and chopped parsley. The pomegranate arils add a burst of freshness, and the parsley brings a hint of herbaceousness.
This Pomegranate Honey Glazed Chicken is a delightful balance of sweet and savory, making it a perfect dish for special occasions or a gourmet weeknight dinner. The glaze imparts a beautiful sheen to the chicken, and the combination of honey and pomegranate creates a sauce that elevates the overall dining experience. Serve it alongside your favorite side dishes for a complete and satisfying meal.
