- Chuck 20g walnuts into a food processor and add the garlic, tomato puree, sumac, pomegranate molasses, olive oil and a good pinch of salt. Blitz into a smooth marinade and pour into a mixing bowl. Add the chicken and toss together. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or overnight.
- Preheat the oven to 180 fan and get the chicken out of the fridge to come to room temperature. Oil a baking dish and throw in the onions. Top with the chicken and all the marinade. Roast for 45 minutes to one hour or until charred and sticky.
- Bash the remaining walnuts into a course rubble and scatter them over the chicken along with pomegranate seeds and parsley. Season with a pinch of sumac and salt and then serve immediately.
