An embarrassingly long time ago, I was contacted by the POM blogger to see if I'd like to try cooking with pomegranate juice. I said "Sure!" because I love the stuff, but for months, the closest to using these in a recipe I got was to mix up a batch of POMtinis for my sister's bachelorette party. My sister is a bartender, so I was a little intimidated by the idea of mixing drinks for her and her friends, but they loved these. To make a pitcher, just substitute "cup" for "ounce" in the recipe. Then you have enough for 8 drinks (or less, if you have big glasses).
Some of the other little bottles in my case just became post-run recovery drinks or got mixed with seltzer when I wanted something bubbly. Finally, I was down to two little bottles and decided I'd better cook something before they were all gone.
There are a whole bunch of recipes on the POM Wonderful site, but I just did a search for "pomegranate juice" and "chicken" and found a great one for Chicken in Pomegranate Juice (I did not try the penne pasta variation and don't think I would like it). I did my best to document the recipe steps with photos. I ended up making a few minor changes.
I would definitely make this recipe again, though I'm not sure I would do it in the summer. It got hot standing there and stirring the sauce so it wouldn't burn, and since I had to turn the oven on, the whole kitchen heated up. I wondered if I might be able to make something similar by browning the chicken and then putting it in the crockpot with the rest of the ingredients.
