Ingredients

  • 1 Pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into one-inch pieces
  • 3/4 Cups organicgirl® pomegranate balsamic dressing, divided
  • 2 Asian or other firm pears, cored and cut into wedges
  • 1/4 Cup chopped parsley

Directions

In a large bowl, toss chicken with ½ cup dressing. Cover and refrigerate at least one hour.

Thread the marinated chicken and pears onto skewers.

Pomegranate Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
