This Turmeric Yogurt Chicken is the perfect food prep recipe. Put the chicken in the marinade ahead of time, then simple coat with breadcrumbs and bake for a quick, healthy dinner!
I made this Turmeric Yogurt Chicken a while ago but am just now getting around to sharing it with you. I knew it was a hit when both the toddler and the husband gobbled it up. The marinade is super easy to make and keeps the chicken nice and juicy. Just prep it ahead of time and when dinner time rolls around, simply coat the chicken in breadcrumbs and pop it in the oven. Voila! Dinner in a jiffy.
Turmeric has become quite popular lately. It’s a great spice known for its anti-inflammatory properties and a couple months ago we bought a huge jar of it at Costco. I’ve been loving it with chicken but you could also use it to make things like golden milk!
When I bake breaded chicken like this, I like to put a cookie cooling rack across my baking sheet and put the chicken on that so the bottom doesn’t get as soggy…but if you don’t have one, you could bake directly on a foil-lined sheet.
Here’s the recipe:
Pretty easy, right? Serve with some steamed veggies and rice for an easy dinner!
