Ah Turmeric, how you turn everything yellow, even my fingers. Turmeric is awesome because it has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. However, it will stain the shit out of everything. So be careful not to spill it everywhere while cooking with it. Turmeric has a delicious earthy flavor but I love mixing lemon, salt, pepper, onion powder, and garlic with it to make it more exciting for the taste buds!
Baked Lemon Turmeric Chicken | Makes 6 Servings
- 4 Large Chicken Breasts
- 1 Lemon
- 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
- Onion Powder
- Garlic Powder
First, brine the chicken in salt water for 15 minutes.
Pat the chicken dry with paper towels before placing in a baking dish.
Preheat the oven to 475 degrees Fahrenheit.
Baste the both sides of the chicken with olive oil. Then squeeze the juice of 1 lemon over the chicken.
Sprinkle turmeric, salt, pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder to taste on both sides of chicken. This is where I acquired yellow fingers.
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Cook time depends on how big your chicken breasts are and how fast your oven cooks.
2 of my chicken breasts were really large so I cut them in half giving me 6 servings.
Portion out into airtight containers and store in the fridge for 3 to 4 days.
Serve with your favorite roasted veggies or a side salad.
