You can find pomegranate molasses in Middle Eastern and specialty stores. Serve warm or at room temperature.
3/4 cup honey
1/3 cup finely chopped shallots
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice (about 3 small lemons)
1 tablespoon grated lemon rind
2 tablespoons pomegranate molasses
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon hot sauce
6 garlic cloves, minced
16 chicken thighs (about 4 pounds), skinned
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 tablespoon water
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
How to Make It
Combine first 9 ingredients in a large bowl; marinate in refrigerator 2 hours, stirring occasionally.
Preheat oven to 425°.
Remove chicken from bowl, reserving marinade. Combine cornstarch and water in a small bowl. Place the reserved marinade in a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Stir in cornstarch mixture, and cook for 3 minutes or until thickened, stirring frequently. Remove from heat. Place chicken on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake at 425° for 30 minutes or until chicken is done, basting with reserved marinade every 10 minutes.
Awesome dish. Made it for my book club this week and everyone raved. I will say that I was concerned at first about being able to find pomegranate molasses, but found an easy recipe that just included lemon juice, sugar, and pomegranate juice. Highly recommend.
