  • skin-on chicken breasts 6
  • pomegranate molasses 1 tbsp
  • olive oil 1 tbsp
  • garlic 1 clove
  • lemon ½, juiced
  • tahini 2 tbsp
  • natural yogurt 150ml
  • ground turmeric ½ tsp
  • pomegranate seeds 4 tbsp
  • mint a small bunch, leaves picked


  • Step 1

    Heat the oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Put the chicken breasts skin-side up on a baking tray. Drizzle with the pomegranate molasses and olive oil, and season well.

    Pop the garlic clove out of its skin and mash to a paste with a little salt. Mix it with the lemon juice, tahini, yogurt, turmeric and 2-3 tbsp of water to make a drizzle-able dressing, then season.

  • Step 3

    Thickly slice the chicken and put on a platter. Scatter over the pomegranate seeds and mint, and drizzle with the dressing.
