A plate of pomegranate rosemary chicken.I love using pomegranate molasses with my chicken dishes. It gives off such a unique sweet and tartness that's like no other. Here, I've added a bit of orange juice and rosemary sprigs to round it off nicely.


Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 25 minutes

Total Time: 40 minutes


  • 3 lb chicken pieces (I used skin-on)
  • 1 cup pomegranate molasses
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1 Tbsp dried rosemary
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/3 ' cup honey
  • salt and pepper
Ingredients for pomegranate rosemary chicken.


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In a bowl, mix together pomegranate molasses, garlic, orange juice, rosemary, olive oil, and honey. Reserve 1/4 cup for later.
  2. Marinade for pomegranate rosemary chicken.
  3. Place chicken pieces in a dish and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  4. Chicken sprinkled with spices.
  5. Pour pomegranate marinade all over chicken. Allow to sit for 15 minutes.
  6. The chicken covered in marinade.

  7. Heat some oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Place chicken in pan, skin-side down. Cook for about 7 minutes until skin is crispy.
  8. The chicken covered in marinade.
  9. Flip over and cook a few more minutes until browned.
  10. The cooked pomegranate rosemary chicken.
  11. Transfer to oven if you have an oven-safe pan, or place on baking sheet to go into the oven. Drizzle reserved pomegranate marinade on top. Cook in oven for another 15 minutes or until inner temp hits 165 degrees F.

Sounds delicious. I have a recipe for Rosemary Lemon Chicken that is similar, but the addition of pomegranate molasses and orange juice would make it even more special.

Please do! You can marinate it overnight and it will really soften the meat up, as well. delish!
