Jewish Recipes --> Recipes --> Kosher Meat --> Kosher Chicken

Chicken in Pomegranate Sauce
Recipe Ingredients:
  • 1 large chicken, quartered
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
  • 4-6 pomegranates
  • The juice of two lemons
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • Salt and pepper to taste
In a large heavy skillet brown the chicken pieces quickly in hot oil. With a
slotted spoon, remove the chicken and in the same skillet sauté the onion
until nicely browned. Add the walnuts and continue to sauté over low flame,
for 2-3 minutes longer.

Cut the pomegranates in half, scoop out the seeds and discard the pith.
Place the seeds in a blender and blend for 3-4 seconds and then strain the
juice into a bowl, pressing to squeeze out the juice. (This should yield
about 1 cup of juice).

Pour the juice into a skillet, add the lemon juice, sugar, 2/3 cup of water
and salt and pepper to taste. Bring to a bare simmer, stir, return the
chicken pieces to the skillet and cook, uncovered until the chicken is very
tender (45 minutes to 1 hour).

Taste and correct the seasoning with more lemon or sugar to taste. If the
sauce is too thick, thin with a little water. Serve piping hot.

Cooking Tips:   Here's my tried and true "NO SHPRITZ" method to seed a pomegranate easily:

First, trim off the crown. Score the sides with several vertical cuts (as you would score segments on an orange) but do not cut deeper than the rind.

Immerse the pomegranate in a large bowl of water and soak for 15 minutes, to soften. Keeping the pomegranate completely submerged the whole time, pull off sections, bend them backwards and use fingertips to gently loosen the seeds (botanically termed arils.)

Pieces of rind, membrane and pith will float to the surface of the water where it can easily be skimmed and discarded, while the seeds (arils) will sink to the bottom of the bowl.

Because the fruit is submerged under water, there is no 'shpritzing' of the red juice all over you. Works like a charm every time!
