OMG YUM.

Okay, the Pomegranate-Walnut Chicken? An INTENSE success.

I made a few changes to the recipe. First off, I cut the chicken breasts in half width-wise, because doing that always makes me feel like I have more food. I browned for slightly less time because of that.

I didn't grind the walnuts as finely as they say, and it gave the sauce an almost chutney-ish feel: I could cheerfully have eaten it with a fork. Cooking for only two people and two kids who weren't going to go for this meal, I halved all the sauce proportions, which meant it thickened more quickly than the recipe said (more surface area). I also left out the tomato paste, cause, um, I ran out of tomato paste. There was a lot of sauce left over.

I made it with saffron rice and a salad for the vegetable.

It was really, really good. Almost sweet, but balanced by the nuts to give it a nice earthiness. It really, really, REALLY didn't taste like a dish with only 300 calories per serving: I think the entire meal had well under 600 calories, even with a lot of salad and a decent-sized rice serving.

Definite thumbs-up!
