Prep Time: 5 min
Cooking Time: 20 min
4 boneless, skinless chicken thigh
Coarse sea salt
Freshly cracked black pepper
1 tsp avocado or olive oil
1/2 cup pomegranate juice
1/4 cup Mitch Maier's Black Garlic Sauce & Marinade
For garnish: pomegranate arils and parsley (optional)
Preheat oven to 350° F. Pat chicken thighs dry with a paper towel, then liberally season with salt and pepper.
Heat oil in a cast-iron skillet or another large oven-proof skillet over high heat on the stove. Sear chicken thighs for 2-3 minutes per side, then remove to a clean plate. Cover and set aside.
Pour pomegranate juice and Sauce & Marinade into the skillet and bring to a boil for 1 minute, then turn the heat down to medium-low. Whisk to deglaze the skillet and let cook until the mixture has thickened about 10-15 minutes.
Return chicken thighs to the pan with the sauce and turn to coat. Place skillet in the oven to finish the cooking chicken, about 15 minutes, or until a thermometer inserted into the center reads 165° F.
Serve chicken with a drizzle of sauce from the pan and a sprinkle of pomegranate arils and parsley (optional).
