Recipe Strawberry Crumble

 

Ingredients:

Instructions:

  1. Halve the pomegranates and de-seed by whacking the back (skin side) with a wooden spoon over a bowl. The arils should fall out easily. Reserve a ¼-cup. Run the rest through a juicer to extract the juice. If you don’t have a juicer, pulse in a blender until the juice is released, and strain through a double layer of cheesecloth to remove the seeds. You should end up with about a cup of juice.
  2. Pound the chicken breasts to an even thickness of about ½-inch. Season both sides generously with salt and pepper.
  3. Heat oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium high heat until shimmering. Cook 4-5 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and cooked through. Remove to a plate and set aside.
  4. Deglaze the pan with the juice, scraping up any browned bits. Whisk in miso paste, vinegar, mirin, honey, pepper flakes, and ginger. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to a simmer. Cook and stir until thickened, about 6-10 minutes. Remove from heat.
  5. Return the chicken to the skillet with the sauce, and coat on all sides. Serve hot with reserved arils and extra sauce.
