About this Recipe

This chicken dish combines the sweet and tangy flavours of pomegranate molasses with garlic, ginger and chilli.


2.5 lbs Maple Leaf Prime Chicken Drumsticks
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp chilli flakes
1 tsp fresh ginger, grated
3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
2 tbsp pomegranate molasses
1 tbsp dried chopped onion
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tbsp honey
1 tbsp pomegranate molasses


In a large bowl, combine the chicken, salt, chilli flakes, ginger, molasses, onion and lemon juice.
Cover the bowl with plastic wrap, and let the chicken marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 350F.
Line a shallow baking dish or (baking tray) with tin foil and set aside.
In a small bowl, combine the honey and pomegranate molasses for the glaze. Set aside for later.
Take the chicken out of the fridge, and remove excess marinade.
Place the chicken in the baking dish and bake in the oven for 15 minutes.
Take the chicken out of the oven, and use a brush to baste the chicken with the molasses mixture. Bake for 15 more minutes and baste again.
Bake for another 15-20 minutes, or until the chicken is completely cooked through.
