The flavor of turmeric, somewhere between ginger and pepper, gives a tangy finish to any marinade. When shopping for turmeric in the spice aisle look for a bright marigold color and lots of fragrance. Keep the bottle well sealed and stored in a cool, dry, dark pantry.

  • 16 oz Chicken Breast
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 3 tbsp Lime Juice
  • 1/2 tsp Chili Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Turmeric
  • 2 tsp Rosemary, fresh
  • 1/2 clove Garlic
  • 2 tbsp Salted Butter


1 Preheat broiler or grill.
2 Cut chicken breasts lengthwise and cut away excess fat.
3 Combine oil, lime juice, chili powder, turmeric, rosemary, garlic, salt and pepper in a mixing bowl and blend well.
4 Add chicken pieces to the bowl and turn them to fully coat/marinade.
5 Cover and set aside.
6 Once ready to cook, place chicken on the broiler rack or on the grill.
7 Cover the grill or close the door to the broiler and cook for about 3-4 minutes and then turn the pieces.
8 Continue cooking until done, about 3-4 minutes on the grill, possibly a little longer under the broiler.
9 Remove the pieces and brush the tops with the melted butter.
