This chicken had Luv all sorts of excited. She loves when we have chicken for dinner because that (usually) means she’ll have chicken in her lunch the next day.

Of course, I’m particularly fond of this meal because of the pomegranate. 😍

    This looks really delicious. I have not yet cooked chicken in duck fat–yet. This recipe makes me motivated try it. And then- there’s the lure of pomegranate! Thanks Erin 🙂

      Thanks Anne! Duck fat is one of my favorite fats because of its flavor. If you do try it, let me know how you liked it!
