In this video, you’ll see how to combine chicken drumsticks with Middle Eastern spices and herbs plus pomegranate juice to create a flavorful marinade for baked chicken. You’ll learn why pomegranate juice makes such an excellent marinade. After a nice long soak, the chicken pieces go into the oven to bake as the marinade reduces down to a wonderful sweet-tart sauce. Serve it on rice or pilaf. Get Chef John’s recipe for Exotic Pomegranate Chicken.

Another quirk I have is that I do not like to store in plastic. I know they have microwave save plastic...blah,blah,blah. I don't trust it. I use a glass storage system I bought at Costco. The last one I bought has smaller glass containers which is perfect for us. Does have plastic lids but that's OK since it's not touching the food.

Regarding the Pomegranate Chicken...2 cups juice reduced by 2/3= (1 C = 3/3) so X 2 cups= 6/3 pommie juice. Reduce by 2/3. 6/3 minus 3/3 = 2/3. So you will cook it down by 1 cup. I like it sticky so I would either thicken the juice or cook down another 1/4 cup. Don't walk away if you're doing this stove top though.
