  • 1 ½ Pounds Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts or thighs
  • 1 Pound Brussels Sprouts – trimmed and halved, or quartered if large
  • ¼ Cup Pomegranate Molasses
  • ¼ Cup + 1 ½ TBS Balsamic Vinegar ,divided
  • ¼ Cup + 1 1/2 tsp Honey ,divided
  • 1 Clove Garlic – minced
  • 1 Lemon – Juiced (about 2 TBS)
  • 2 TBS Olive Oil
  • Kosher Salt & Pepper
Optional Garnishes: Lemon Wedges, Pomegranate Arils, Micro Greens
Optional for serving: Jasmine rice
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Make the Marinades:  In a medium bowl, combine molasses with ¼ cup vinegar, ¼ cup honey, garlic, and lemon juice.  Season with salt and pepper to taste (this mixture is for chicken). Whisk to combine. In a small bowl combine the remaining vinegar and honey (this mixture is for brussels sprouts). Whisk to combine. Set both aside.

  3. Marinate the Chicken: Place the chicken in a large, zip-closure bag and add HALF of the molasses mixture (about heaping 1/3 cup), reserving the remaining mixture for brushing and serving*. Seal and transfer to the refrigerator (up to overnight) to marinate.
  4. For Baking:  Line a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment for easy clean up. Place the marinated chicken on half the prepared baking sheet*. Add the brussels to the other half of the pan and toss with the olive oil. Season the chicken and brussels generously with salt and pepper.

  5. Bake:  Transfer to the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and the sprouts are caramelized. Halfway through baking, brush the chicken with HALF of the reserved marinade* and rotate the baking sheet.

  6. For Serving:  Remove from the oven and drizzle balsamic honey mixture over brussels sprouts.  Transfer to chicken and brussels sprouts to serving dishes. Garnish with lemon, arils and micro greens if using. Drizzle with reserved molasses sauce. Enjoy!
