Chicken and Turmeric Delight

5.0/5 rating (2 votes)

I recently discovered that the combination of chicken and turmeric are a delight together!


  • 2-3 breasts chicken, de-skinned and de-boned
  • ½-1 onion (depends how much chicken and how much onion you want), diced
  • 3 cloves Garlic, diced
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons Turmeric
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil


  1. In a saute pan set heat to medium and add 1 tablespoon of olive oil.

  2. Cut the chicken into small cubes and add to saute pan.

  3. Cook until white on all sides (about 5 minutes).

  4. Remove from pan and put on a plate.

  5. Using the same pan add the remainder 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil

  6. Add garlic and let cook for 1 minute, then add chicken broth and let simmer for 5 minutes

  7. Add the chicken back in the pan and let the broth reduce to less than 1/2.

  8. Add turmeric and combine well with the chicken.

  9. Cover and cook for 5-10 minutes to make sure the chicken is all fully cooked. If you want more of a turmeric flavor add more.


    Note: I added a teaspoon of grated ginger the last time I made this dish.
