Whole Pomegranate Glazed Chicken

With a savory marinade and a sweet, tart glaze, this Whole Pomegranate Glazed Chicken is the perfect centerpiece for any holiday meal. The marinade and glaze can also be used for turkey on Thanksgiving.

1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

2. Remove any giblets from the opening of the body cavity and pat dry. Tie drumsticks together with kitchen twine.

3. Stuff the cavity of the chicken with the head of garlic, quartered oranges, and rosemary sprigs. Rub the chicken with olive oil, salt and pepper. Place the chicken in a roasting pan.
4. In a small bowl, mix the pomegranate molasses, honey, paprika, and orange juice. Liberally brush all over the chicken. Reserve any leftover glaze.

5. Roast the chicken for 45-60 minutes, basting with pan juices and brushing with the pomegranate mixture occasionally. The chicken is ready when the juices run clear when the thigh is pierced.

6. Let rest for 15 minutes then carve and serve.

Ann’s Tips and Tricks

Pomegranate molasses is extremely versatile and can be found in many supermarkets or specialty stores in the sugar aisle.

For those on a neutropenic diet, always use a meat thermometer to make sure the chicken is properly cooked through to 168F.
