I marinated the cut up chicken for about 5 hours. Came out great on our Traeger grill. Served with roasted garlic couscous and CL's Carrot Pineapple Slaw. Great meal!
I substituted 2tbl of honey and 2tbl of pure pomegranate juice for the Pom/molasses and was very pleased. I also marinated over night and the flavor was delicious! Guests loved it and we served with roasted. Brussels sprouts and mango salsa. Definitely a keeper!
This dressing was more like a bath, not a marinade. After a 30 minute soak, I was disappointed that there wasn't more flavor. So I did more chicken, and bathed it for about 10 hrs. Lemme tell ya, that idea with alternating oranges on the skewer was disastrous. Well seasoned to full on drip, noticed my skewers without oranges did not stick. After first batch came off, desiring more heat, added a full teaspoon of red pepper to the remaining chicken still in the soup and the results were better. I wasn't super impressed. But I will work on this, until i give up on how to get that full on fruit flavor in there. I feed 12 to 15 twice a day so, not too much time for play. Fairly good recipe.
Followed recipe exactly, and it was splendid as a marinade and sauce for chicken kabobs. Reviewer ToadHill should quit whining. No one forced her/him to make this sauce. There is absolutely nothing tyrannical about this or any other recipe.
The recipe may be outstanding as fixed, but is way too overcomplicated. Pommegranite Orange Dressing?? Come on over to the ergonomic way of writing recipes so that people have the items on hand and can substitute easily. One current food writer refers to this kind of recipe as "recipe tyranny." I would say this is a prime example...I have to make a trip to a well-supplied grocery and spend money to make it!
Actually haven't tried it yet. You should be able to find molasses in the baking area of your local market.
I've yet to make this, but fully intend to. However, I am at a lost to find molasses as an ingredient. Can someone help me out?
I substituted pomegranate balsamic vinegar and used regular molasses. This recipe was absolutely amazing! I will definitely make this again and plan to make it for out of town guests whenever possible. I served this with grilled corn and the combination was excellent.
This is really tasty, but I wish it was a little stronger. I tried marinading the chicken longer and that didn't really help either. But it is really tasty. Oh, I didn't like the orange sections at all.
loved, loved, loved the flavor of the chicken. Kids (19 & 14) didnt care too much for the oranges tho. I'm making it again for a party on Sunday so I think I'll make appetizer size kebabs with only 1 orange piece
Great recipe. Would definitely make it again. Our friends loved it too. We didn't alter the ingredients. its good just like it is.
This recipe is delicious! I made kebabs with boneless skinless breasts, marinated about 2 hours and cooked on the grill. I had some pieces leftover and marinated them overnight, then cooked them in a saute pan the next day for lunch - still delicious! Served with minty bulgur wheat peach salad (Cooking Light, July 2009).
