Meanwhile, in a 12-inch skillet cook chicken in 1 tablespoon hot olive oil over medium-high heat for 6 to 8 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink, turning occasionally. Remove chicken from skillet. Keep warm.

Stir in reduced pomegranate juice and vinegar; bring to boiling. Boil 1 minute. Remove from heat and stir in fresh oregano (if using).

3. Serve in large shallow dish. Top with chicken, pomegranate seeds, and nuts. Serve immediately. Makes 4 servings.

From the Test Kitchen*Test Kitchen Tip:
  • To toast nuts, spread slivered almonds in single layer in shallow baking pan. Bake in 350 degree F* oven 5 to 10 minutes or until light golden brown, watching carefully and stirring once or twice to prevent burning. Toast nuts up to 1 day before using.
