Grilled Chicken with Pomegranate Molasses

Go heavy on the fresh black pepper. The char from the grill and the sticky tang of the pomegranate molasses can withstand a lot of black-pepper heat.

  • 4 bone-in chicken breasts, with skin (large, about 2 pounds)
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 3 teaspoons pomegranate molasses (see Note)

How to make this recipe

  1. Light a grill or preheat a grill pan. Season the chicken breasts liberally with salt and pepper. Grill the breasts over moderately high heat, turning occasionally, until the chicken is lightly charred and cooked through, about 20 to 25 minutes.

  2. Transfer the chicken to a work surface and let rest for 5 minutes. In a small bowl, combine the pomegranate molasses and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper. Serve the chicken with the molasses on the side.

Make Ahead

The seasoned chicken can be kept in the refrigerator uncovered for up to two days. Bring to room temperature before grilling.


Pomegranate molasses can be found at Middle Eastern markets, natural food stores and gourmet markets.
