POM:Pomegranates Sesame Chicken

If you're my regular readers,you notice I always join any events or contest out there if permitted. I'm love fresh pomegranates as its but never use the juice to cook as a meal .I'm interested to experiment this wonderful fruit and took the courage to join POM Wonderful Fresh pomegranates recipe contest which ended today at 11.59 pm PST.I understand pomegranates have high level of antioxidants. Aside from its rich flavor and the number of ways to eat and drink it, studies have shown that pomegranate contains more antioxidants than green tea, cranberries and even red wine! Pomegranate also promotes healthy blood pressure levels and low cholesterol. Pomegranate juice can be helpful for men as well… as studies have concluded that it may help prevent prostate cancer and growth.Wow! that interesting piece of information to know,right?.Here is my humble pomegranates recipe: POM Sesame Chicken

2 lb or 4 pcs boneless chicken breast (clean and cut cube-2 inch each)

2 eggs

1/4 cup corn starch/flour

1 tbsp sugar

1 tbsp salt

1 tbsp ground pepper

2 dash baking powder

2 cups cooking oil

* *marinate above ingrendiets overnight or one hour before deep fry**

For sauce:

1/2 cup POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice

2 cloves garlic (minced)

3 tbsp sugar

2 tbsp apple cider vinegar

1 tsp ground ginger powder

1 tbsp hoisin sauce

4 tbsp soy sauce

1 tbsp chicken bullion powder

1 tbsp corn starch dissolve with 1 tsp water

Garnish (optional):

2 tbsp roasted sesame seeds

1/2 cup arils from 1/2 large POM Wonderful Pomegranate


1:Prepare garnish - Score 1 fresh pomegranate and place in a bowl of water. Break open the pomegranate underwater to free the arils (seed sacs).

2:Prepared oil for frying chicken at medium heat.Deep fry the marinated and flour coated boneless chicken breast until golden brown.Sieve and dry the breaded chicken,set a set.

3:Prepared skillet with some oil to fry minced garlic until fragrant,add in 1/2 cup POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice ,sugar,apple cider vinegar,soy sauce,ground ginger powder,hoisin sauce and chicken bullion powder.Let is simmer for 2-3 minutes before add in corn starch dissolved.Adjust the seasoning to your tastebud:sweetness and saltiness.

4:When the sauce is rolling boil add in the fried boneless chicken,mix well before remove from heat.


I like this savoury POM Sesame Chicken recipe which I created yesterday.If you like a healthy version,just omit the deep frying process.Maybe you can grill or steam the chicken.
