You may have guessed by now that i love chicken and Healing one tray turmeric chicken is amongst my top ten favourite ways to eat chicken. Firstly because it’s a one tray job – everyone loves a one tray recipe. Secondly because it’s so delicious – there’s no compromise on flavour here and thirdly because turmeric is sooooo good for us – hello nutritional benefits!

It’s been a crazy few days here. Like really crazy. I think theres a misconception about blogging and the amount of work involved in it, which is understandable but a little bit frustrating. I didn’t quite get it myself until i was in it and to be honest, at the moment i am just skimming the surface even though it feels like I am working ALL the time. There is a lot more i could be doing, however i have to wait until certain things are in place first. That being said, I as with many people who are starting a business put in a lot of hours and the smallest part of that is the making of the food bit! So generally, if i have to drop a post during the week (which i hate to do and have had to do this week), it is generally because i have gotten busy with other stuff.

I’m liking that the weather has cooled down slightly! Woohoooo for some gentle breeze cos no body likes a sweaty betty. Not that i was one. Ahem.. Cool as a cucumber.

Anyway, back to the one tray turmeric chicken. I really think you should try it. I used to always think of turmeric as a spice you should only use a little of so i get that the idea of turmeric chicken might be a bit much but i promise you it works and you will love it! Besides turmeric is warming and full of benefits! You’re welcome. 🙂

    • Thank you for your lovely comment. Wow i have never heard that re washing of the chicken. Just reading up on it now. Changing to ‘clean’ as we speak. Thank you

  1. Agreed! Blogging is SOOOO much work and most people have NO clue how much it entails! I do get a bit miffed at comments complaining about a recipe after we worked so hard to provide it for FREE!

    This turmeric chicken sounds fabulous! I’m constantly trying to find more ways to use it for its health benefits! Thanks for the recipe!
