  • add   3 tablespoons walnuts<br> 12 chicken drumsticks (3 lb total)<br> 1/2 teaspoon salt<br> 1/4 teaspoon black pepper<br> 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil<br> 1/2 cup drained bottled roasted red peppers (from a 7-oz jar)<br> 1/3 cup fine fresh bread

Instructions

  1. Put oven rack in lower third of oven and preheat oven to 475°F. While oven is preheating, toast nuts on a baking sheet in oven until golden, 3 to 4 minutes.
  2. Pat chicken dry, then put in a large shallow heavy baking pan (1 inch deep) without crowding and rub with salt, pepper, and 2 tablespoons oil. Bake, without turning, until golden brown and cooked through, 30 to 35 minutes.
  3. While chicken bakes, blend together bell peppers, bread crumbs, walnuts, garlic paste, pomegranate molasses, cumin, and cayenne in a food processor until as smooth as possible, about 1 minute. With motor running, gradually add remaining 6 tablespoons oil and blend until combined well. Season sauce with salt and drizzle over baked chicken.
