Grilled Pomegranate White Balsamic Chicken:

Web Chef Review: Napa Valley Pomegranate White Balsamic Vinegar - cookingwithkimberly.comI marinate the chicken quarters first to help the meat to cook more quickly, and so the chicken absorbs the tasty flavors of Napa Valley Pomegranate White Balsamic Vinegar, that has been infused with pomegranates, made by Napa Valley Vinegar Co. from Wine Country Kitchens.

This amazing vinegar is a bright ruby color, and is super sweet and more flavorful than you would expect, so you don’t need to add other flavor enhancers.

After marinating the chicken in the Napa Valley Pomegranate White Balsamic Vinegar mixture, I grill the chicken to get some pretty grill marks on the meat and then finish it off in the oven. The extra marinating mix will also be used to baste the chicken during cooking.

The ingredients & instructions are listed below the video for measurements & directions. Please enjoy this webisode of Cooking with Kimberly:



  1. Texas BBQ s6000 Combination Gas Grill - shop.cookingwithkimberly.comPreheat your grill to high heat, and preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. To prepare the marinade, whisk together in a small bowl, olive oil, pomegranate white balsamic vinegar, ground mustard, chili flakes, freshly minced parsley, sea salt and ground pepper. Combine thoroughly and set aside.
  3. Using a sharp knife, separate the quarters in half at the joint of the drumstick and the thigh, by making a light cut at the apex of the joint, and then bend the joint backwards to expose the joint, and cut through to separate the two parts.
  4. Set of 4 Cereal Soup Bowls in Curry by UNO - shop.cookingwithkimberly.comPlace the chicken parts into a resealable plastic bag and pour the marinade into the bag and seal. Then, massage the marinade into the chicken, and shake to make sure all areas of the chicken parts are coated with the marinade.
    • Tip: Place the bag containing the chicken into a small bowl to hold the bag upright, so the marinade doesn’t leak out of the bag.
  5. Allow to marinate for at least 1 hr or as long as 24 hr.
    • Note: If you marinate the chicken for longer than 1/2 hour, the chicken in the marinating liquid should be refrigerated.
  6. Kitchen Collection Two-Toned Silicone Brushes - shop.cookingwithkimberly.comRemove chicken from the marinating bag and place on hot grill. Allow grill marks to form on the chicken (about 3 – 4 min.). Pour basting liquid from the plastic bag into a small bowl, and using a basting brush, baste chicken during grilling, from time to time.
  7. Turn the chicken over and repeat the above process of creating grill marks and basting.
  8. Heat a baking tray or oven safe saute pan in the oven, so it is hot when you place the chicken parts into it.
  9. Transfer chicken to the prepared hot baking tray or oven safe saute pan, and place in oven to cook until chicken is done and chicken juices run clear – 40 – 45 min.
    • Note: Check on progress at the 20 min mark, then continue to cook until done.
  10. Remove from oven and serve.

How to Grill Napa Valley Pomegranate White Balsamic Chicken - cookingwithkimberly.comI find this chicken to be cooked through and perfectly seasoned. With the caramelized balsamic, it is slightly sweet and spicy, and the charred grill marks add another layer of flavor that I just love.

This dish would be equally suitable to serve at a dinner party or at your family dinner table.

I served this beautiful, savory and delicious dish with Roasted Portuguese Potatoes, and Napa Valley Blackberry Ginger Balsamic Curly Cucumber Salad.
