Red Wine & Pomegranate Braised Chicken
I had some left over Pinot Noir in the fridge from the holidays and the thought of combining it with pomegranate juice sounded really yummy so the idea for Red Wine & Pomegranate Braised Chicken was born. This was an experimental dish, the boyfriend is out of town and if it came out awful at least I wouldn't ruin the evening for him, so I was feeling adventurous. Braising is an easy way to prepare chicken as it soaks in whatever liquid and flavors you cook it in and can all be done in one skillet. Verdict: delicious! The red wine and pomegranate reduction that tops the chicken was so good that I literally ate every last drop out of the pan! Plus, the chicken was cooked perfectly and stayed nice and moist. I served this with a green salad and a pomegranate vinaigrette I made adding EVOO and balsamic vinegar.
