If you are a football fan, you know that sometimes your team makes you cheer or end up in tears. But you can always score with your pour. POM wonderful delivers the perfect combo of sweet and tart as well as health benefits, to give your body a smart start. Pomegranates are high in antioxidants to help fight off disease and keep the body healthy. Pomegranate juice is a good source of potassium, a mineral that most of us fall short on every day. Plus there is no added sugar making POM Wonderful a better choice than sugar sweetened beverages.
Fill a glass halfway with POM Wonderful’s 100% pomegranate juice and then fill the rest of the way with a lime or orange seltzer water. Squeeze in a little fresh lime or orange and enjoy. Cheers!

Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken and onion and sauté until both are golden brown, about 8 minutes.
