Chicken livers with pomegranate molasses


Chicken liver has a strong flavor that may take a little getting used to. But, you’ll never know until you try. If you’re feeling adventurous and enjoy minerally, earthy flavors, give liver a try. The pomegranate molasses gives a sweet flavor to counterbalance the minerality of the liver taste.

In Lebanon it is called "Sawda Djej" a dish of chicken livers, fried with handfuls of garlic, and finished with sticky-sour pomegranate molasses.

I came across this recipe for chicken liver with pomegranate molasses on a Palestinian friend chief Facebook Page Samar's Kitchen , and it was an amazing recipe perfect for chicken liver lovers of the world!
