Persian Chicken

Ok it's not the prettiest looking dish but it was different and tasty and besides I was able to use the bottle of pomegranate molasses I had in the cupboard ....

Oh, I dunno, GQ, looks pretty good to me! Hmm, pomegranate molasses? Never heard of it.

Yes, recipe please! Pomegranate molasses must be a UK thing.

I just had a look at the bottle DL. It's mostly covered in what appears to be Arabic, but there is one line of ingredients in English, which just says "Concentrated pomegranate juice, sugar, citric acid".

Not much more I can tell you about it! Oh, well apart from the fact that it is a thick, syrupy consistency and quite rich and sweet.

Thanks Katy! I wonder if we could boil down PomWonder juice and get a reasonable facsimile. While one of the newer touted health foods, pomegranate juice is exhorbitantly expensive here.

Pomegranates and juice are very expensive here too.

But the molasses aren't too bad considering it is concentrated:

That link doesn't look like it is working but if not, here is what the description says: (It is 2.49 (about $4) for a bottle - but that would go a long way and juice is a lot more expensive).

"Premium product

Made in Lebanon

Pomegranate Syrup has a sweet-sour flavour and lush fruit aroma. In Middle Eastern cooking it is traditionally used as an ingredient in sauces, casseroles and marinades for barbequed meat, but in the West we've discovered all sorts of new uses for it! Try Pomegranate Syrup in salad dressings, on ice cream, as a mixer, in cocktails, to flavour tea or as a drink on its own (dilute to taste)."

You can get it here in the states at a middle eastern food specialty shop, if you're lucky enough to have one in your area.
