Besides being gorgeous, this dish is incredibly complex. The pomegranate, yogurt, and herbs play up each other’s hidden floral notes, while the lactones in the chicken blend seamlessly with fruity lactones and esters in the pomegranate. If you’re feeling bold, try substituting duck breast or boneless quail for the chicken in this recipe.
These simple yet flavorful ingredients can be put together in minutes and left to cook. This recipe can be made with chicken, lamb, or chopped potatoes. The simple yet distinct flavors of the greens and spices make it taste delicious with the chutney of your choice and a side of rice or bread.
Chicken pot pie is one of the most classic comfort foods there is. The thing with pot pie, though, is the crust is complicated and can get soggy easily. This version uses tots as the crust, so it’s easy to make and will be super crispy every time. You can make this in a large baking pan, but I like to use individual baking dishes so my guests can dig into their own little pies.
New Mexican or Anaheim chiles can be substituted for the guajillo chiles. If queso fresco is unavailable, you can substitute farmer's cheese or a mild feta. When baking the tortillas, stir them well to promote even browning.
Greens, avocado, tomato and red onion are sprinkled liberally with the chaat masala and a little fresh chile. Layer cooked chicken breast on top and drizzle the whole thing with a cumin-coriander based dressing.

For our take on Thai grilled chicken, we started with Cornish hens, which are similar in size to the hens traditionally used by chicken vendors in Thailand. Butterflying and flattening the hens helped them cook more quickly and evenly on the grill. We created a marinade consisting of cilantro leaves and stems (a substitute for hard-to-find cilantro root), lots of garlic, white pepper, ground coriander, brown sugar, and fish sauce; thanks to its pesto-like consistency, it clung to the hens instead of sliding off. We set up a half-grill fire and started cooking the hens skin side up over the cooler side of the grill so the fatty skin had time to slowly render while the meat cooked; then we finished them over the hotter side to crisp the skin. We whipped up a version of the traditional sweet-tangy-spicy dipping sauce by combining equal parts white vinegar and sugar and simmering the mixture until it was slightly thickened and would cling nicely to the chicken. Plenty of minced garlic and Thai chiles balanced the sauce with savory, fruity heat.
Quail are prized throughout the Mediterranean for their delicate flavor, which is milder and sweeter than that of many other game birds. Turning to a classic eastern Mediterranean staple, we glazed the skin with pomegranate molasses in two applications.
America's Test Kitchen found the trick to applying a glossy, tangy-sweet glaze to turkey so it doesn’t pool at the bottom of the pan or keep the skin from crisping up.
