Pomegranate Grilled Chicken

pomegranate-grilled-chicken

I'm so excited about this festive twist on my staple grilled chicken. I don't know about you, but I get super bored of the same ole grilled chicken all the time. But I'm trying to lean out, so it's really a must-have for the most part. 

This recipe was the product of successful (if you ask me) experimentation. I wanted to spice (or really, sweeten) up my chicken for the Christmas season.

Ingredients:

  • 2 chicken breasts
  • Coconut oil spray
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Fresh rosemary
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 1 cup fresh pomegranates
  • 1 Tbsp coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp arrowroot

Directions:

  1. Heat your grill (I used an iron grill pan), and spray with coconut oil
  2. Lay chicken on grill, season with salt, pepper, and rosemary
  3. Let chicken cook for 4 minutes, flip to the other side and cook for another 4 minutes
  4. While the chicken is cooking, heat up a pan to low heat
  5. Add 1 tsp coconut oil to pan
  6. Once oil has melted, add 1/2 cup pomegranates and coconut sugar
  7. Let these heat for about 3 minutes and then remove from heat 
  8. Blend or puree cooked pomegranates  and then add back to heated pan
  9. Stir in arrowroot (this will help to thicken the mixture) and heat for another 3 minutes 
  10. Check to see if the chicken is done, remove from the grill if it is
  11. Simply top the grilled chicken with the pomegranate blend, and then also with fresh pomegranates and rosemary
