Recently I read it online that turmeric is a super food that does wonders to our health. The yellow color root, belongs to the ginger family, is anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, has wound healing and other medicinal benefits.
It’s one of my favorite spices; it imparts an exotic taste, wonderful fragrance and aromas to protein such as chicken.
This honey turmeric chicken is a great recipe to introduce you to turmeric. The chicken moist, juicy, delicious, golden in color, with an intense aroma and absolutely mouthwatering.
Serve the chicken with steamed rice or noodles. It’s really delicious and takes only 15 minutes from prep to dinner table. Turmeric stains easily so make sure you use spoon and do not spill them over your countertop.
