Khoresht Fesenjaan (Chicken with Pomegranate Sauce) Recipe ...
This is a well-known Persian dish of chicken with a pomegranate and walnut sauce. Khoresht Fesenjan should be served with white rice.
This extraordinary recipe was "A#1" with all of My family and friends who have had the chance to try it! Loved the smell of the spices while preparing it! Since I cannot get pomegranate juice here, I used fresh pomegranates and squeezed the juice from them! Great, natural taste! this recipe will definitely be added to my "family favorites"!!
Tried this recipe last night and -- overall -- a tasty dish. I’ve had this several times in my favorite NYC Persian restaurant and would like to offer a few suggestions: 1.) In order to balance the potentially overpowering taste of the various spices, include about two tablespoons of lemon juice (or the juice of one lemon) and two or three tablespoons of sugar. This helps balance the flavor and seems more authentic to the dish – I think. 2.) Also, do watch the cooking time. Mine was ready in about 1 hour and 45 minutes. This is pretty close to the authentic way of preparing the dish. It is, however, an acquired taste.
Not your everyday chicken dish! In this unique preparation, chicken legs and onions are sauteed in olive oil, then slow simmered with pomegranate juice, pureed toasted walnuts, and cardamom.

Pomegranate juice makes an excellent marinade for chicken. Its sweet, tart flavor works really well, especially with Middle Eastern spices.
This recipe is my twist on a traditional Persian chicken and rice dish. I like to serve this to my family as a main meal accompanied with a salad.
An amazing Persian dish. Incredibly easy to make. Pomegranate paste or syrup may be found in Middle Eastern food specialty shops.
