Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 425°. Whisk together pomegranate molasses, garlic, lemon juice, cumin, and 1/4 tsp. each salt and pepper.

  • Pat chicken thighs dry with paper towels and season all over with remaining 1/4 tsp. each salt and pepper.

  • Heat a dutch oven over medium-high heat and add oil. When hot but not smoking, add chicken and cook, turning once, until golden brown on both sides, about 5 minutes total. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to a plate.

  • Add carrots to dutch oven and cook 5 minutes, turning occasionally. Arrange chicken in a single layer on top of carrots and drizzle with molasses mixture.

  • Transfer to oven and cook until chicken juices run clear and molasses mixture has reduced a bit, about 15 minutes. Top with parsley to serve.

  • *Find at well-stocked grocery stores and online.
