Sweet and Spicy Pomegranate Chicken Drumettes

FeaturedContest Winner

When I make chicken it reminds me of the Forrest Gump movie because I love it fried, baked, grilled, and in soups, salads, and sandwiches. Chicken is my favorite comfort food. I planned on making my son-in-law some Kick'n chicken drumettes for the Super Bowl game. I like a sweet sauce with a kick and recently used the Kick'n chicken seasoning in another recipe and thought it would be tasty in a pomegranate sauce over baked chicken drumettes. I created this recipe to satisfy my cravings for chicken and for my son-in-laws super bowl snack. This is an entry for the recent food contest here on instructables. If you like it, your vote will be appreciated. Let's get kick'n! 

Step 1: Ingredients and Supplies

Picture of Ingredients and Supplies
This is what you will need:

1 Package of chicken drumettes or about 30 
4 Cups Cranberry Pomegranate juice
Pinch Kosher salt
1/2 Cup Organic sugar or ( regular is fine )
1 The juice of one lemon
2-4 Tablespoons Kick'n chicken seasoning
2 -4 Serrano chilis de-seeded
1 Pomegranate de-seeded
Cilantro garnish if desired 

For those who like a very mild sauce I would start off with 1 Serrano pepper and 1/2 teaspoon of the Kick'n chicken seasoning and add more as the sauce cooks tasting along the way if desired. The sauce cooks down to about 1 1/2 cups. I used the sauce for the marinade, basting and for the dipping sauce.

Sauce pan, shallow baking dish, covered bowl or zip lock bag along with measuring cups, and spoons.
