  • 3 lb chicken wings or 20 wings
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 1 cup pomegranate juice
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup tamari or soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch + 4 tbsp water


  1. Bring a large stockpot halfway with water and bring to a boil. Add 1 tbsp salt and 3 pounds of chicken wings. Boil for 30 minutes.

  2. While chicken is boiling in brine, make pomegranate glaze. Add pomegranate juice, honey and soy sauce to a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Simmer for 10 minutes. Mix 2 tbsp cornstarch in 4 tbsp water. Add to pomegranate glaze and boil for another 2 minutes or until sauce starts to thicken. Remove from heat and let cool.

  3. Heat grill. Drain chicken wings and grill on one side for 5 minutes, then flip and cook for another 3 min. Coat with pomegranate glaze and cook for another 3 minutes or until sauce glazes wings nicely. Serve warm with remaining sauce on the side.

Recipe Notes

If you don't have a grill - no problem! These can easily be broiled on high after boiling for 2-3 minutes on each side or until brown and crispy. Then coat in sauce and enjoy!
