Here is a super simple recipe using it to make an amazing, complex tasting main course. If you can't get a hold of the molasses, use pomegranate juice (available at most stores) and a couple teaspoons of honey or sugar.
Total Time: 35
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1/2 orange
- 3 Tbsp pomegranate molasses
- 2 Tbsp honey
- 2 tsp paprika
- 4 chicken thighs
- Preheat oven to 400 F. Grate garlic in a bowl.
- Squeeze orange onto grated garlic.
- Add pomegranate molasses and honey to garlic orange mixture. Blend well.
- Sprinkle in the paprika.
- Heat oil in a cast-iron or heavy nonstick skillet over med-high heat. Sprinkle chicken thighs with salt. Place thighs in skillet, skin side down, and cook three minutes.
- Flip and cook another three minutes. You just want to get a crispy exterior.
- Transfer chicken to baking pan and place in preheated oven. Bake for 10 minutes. Turn the chicken and drizzle generously with the pomegranate molasses mixture. Bake for 10 mminutes more.
- Drizzle any remaining pomegranate molasses on to chicken and serve straight away.
