Grilled Turmeric Lime Chicken

I feel as if the word "chicken" or "grilled chicken" can sound boring to some. Depending how you fix it (or don't), it CAN be boring and tasteless! I have blogged before about our favorite grilled chicken recipe and marinade... check it out here. I have discovered a new one this year, and it has a superstar ingredient: TURMERIC! That bright yellow spice has been getting a lot of attention recently for all of its health benefits. Some of those include a high antioxidant count, powerful anti-infammatory properties, lowers blood sugar, and it's even been said to help delay diabetes and fight cancer! Google for yourself to see all the goodness!

Grilled Turmeric Lime Chicken

Marinade:
1/4 c EVOO
1/2 c fresh lime juice
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp ground turmeric
2 tsp dried rosemary leaves (I use fresh, too!)
2 cloves garlic, minced
salt and fresh ground pepper to taste

-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

Blend or whisk all marinade ingredients together. Add chicken and marinade until ready to cook, at least 2 hours. I love to marinade the chicken over night, or in the morning, for dinner that evening. Preheat grill, and grill chicken on one side for 7-8 mins. Turn over, baste with marinade and grill 8 mins more, or until done. 

This marinade and recipe is so easy to throw together!
 I promise you will love it, and the health benefits are a huge plus! 
I make enough for dinner that night, plus extra for lunches the next day or two!


Now... if you're not looking for quick and easy... then WHO ARE YOU?????

Kidding.
