Sorrel Pomegranate Roasted Chicken
Sorrel Pomegranate Roasted Chicken

I first shared this recipe last holiday season on YouTube and it was one of the best rated videos I did the last quarter of 2017. I guess I’m not alone in my dislike for Turkey, so many people opted to give this Caribbean festive roasted chicken a test drive. As a kid growing up on the islands I always looked forward to when sorrel was in season (usually around Christmas time) as I’ve always been a fan of the juice made from this hibiscus family of flowers. The natural balance of the citrus, sorrel and pomegranate is just awesome as a glaze on chicken (and pork) as you’re about to learn.

You’ll Need…

3 lb chicken
2 slices ginger
1 mandarin / clementine (cut in half)
4 cloves garlic (smashed)
10 sprigs thyme
1/2 medium onion (cut in half)
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon olive oil

2 large pomegranates (juice and seeds)
6 sorrel buds (aka dried hibiscus)
2 clementine / mandarin (juice)
2 tablespoon honey
1 1/2 tablespoon golden brown sugar
