This Persian-inspired stew was simply marvelous! A quick saute of shallots, garlic and carrots in a pat of butter, followed by chicken thighs that are then surrounded by a mixture of chicken stock,, pomegranate juice and a touch of pomegranate molasses. The stew itself does not turn out sweet, but rich and flavorful. The stew cooks for a bit until the chicken is cooked through and tender, then you finish the pot off with fresh parsley, cilantro and a sprinkling of tart pomegranate seeds. Lovely when served over white rice or even a warm scoop of cous cous.
