Chicken Fesenjan Recipe

Laced with tangy-sweet pomegranate molasses and fragrant spices, this healthy and delicious persian stew is traditionally prepared for festive occasions. Here we make it with chicken for a quick and easy dinner but it can also be made with lamb stew meat for special occasions. Serve with brown rice to sop up any extra sauce.
