Sweet and tangy pomegranate juice, spicy Dijon mustard, garlic and turmeric make a delicious and exotic blend for succulent chicken breasts sauteed with mushrooms and tomato.
1 lb raw chicken, cut into even strips
1 tbsp minced garlic
1 tsp ground turmeric
2 tbsp dijon mustard
1/4 cup pomegranate juice
1 tbsp olive oil, divided
5 oz sliced mushrooms
1 plum tomato, chopped
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
Combine garlic, mustard, pomegranate juice and half the olive oil, pour over the chicken in the baggie, turning the pieces to coat well.
Place bag in the fridge on a cookie sheet and allow to marinate 8-12 hours. Remove chicken from marinade, reserving liquid mixture.
Heat remaining oil in a large, non-stick frypan over medium heat.
Add chicken and cook, stirring, until no traces of rawness remain. Remove to a plate and keep warm.
Add mushrooms and tomato to the pan and cook until mushrooms wilt. Stir in marinade, salt and pepper and bring to a boil.
Cook 5 minutes at a boil, until reduced.
Add the chicken back to the pan and simmer 2-3 minutes longer.
Serve over rice or couscous.
