Why cook with Turmeric?

Turmeric is well known for its anti-inflammatory properties. 

Curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, packs many benefits for the body.  Turmeric doesn’t just taste great in savoury dishes!

 It is also a powerful anti-inflammatory agent and antioxidant. It’s most effective paired with black pepper, as in this recipe.

Of course, for the biggest health benefits you will want to turn to Turmeric Supplements.

Turmeric Lemon Skillet Chicken

Yields: 4 servings

Prep Time: 10 minutes | Cook Time: 50 minutes  | Total Time: 1 hour

Ingredients:

4 chicken thighs, bone in skin on
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 cup chicken broth
1 lemon
Olive oil or cooking spray
Fresh parsley to garnish

Spice Mix:

1 teaspoon turmeric
1 teaspoon paprika
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pepper

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

In a small bowl, combine the spice mix. Season each chicken thigh on both sides. Gently lift the skin and rub the spices underneath as well. 

Heat a cast iron skillet on medium-high heat. Allow the skillet to get hot by waiting about 5 minutes before adding two tablespoons of olive oil.

After the oil is hot, place the chicken thighs in the skillet – top down. Allow the chicken to cook for about 4 minutes without touching.

They should turn a nice golden brown color.

Flip the chicken and allow them to cook on the bottom side for about 4 minutes.

Remove the chicken thighs and place on a plate.

Pour one cup of chicken broth in the hot skillet to deglaze the pan. Use a wooden spoon to scrape off any brown bits.

Add minced garlic and the juice of 1 lemon to the pan, stir.
