This recipe features a combination of curry, turmeric, cumin, and coriander. In addition to these dried spices are fresh onion and garlic. These spices are particularly beneficial to your body systems in many ways.

I first tasted this flavor combination at a restaurant five years ago. It was actually a lamb shank, but lamb is something I never buy, so I recreated it as a marinade for chicken.

This flavorful chicken is delicious served alongside some cilantro lime brown rice and a plate of homemade naan bread.

This group of seasonings is somehow warm and fresh at the same time. It has a bite but is also smooth.

I don’t eat a lot of meat on my regular day. I like greens, eggs, fruit, chocolate, cheese, snacks, etc., but I’m not huge on meat.

Beef is purchased now and then to make a bolognese, and I’ll order steak on the rare occasion that I dine out, but, typically, we eat chicken once a week, so I like to mix it up, or I get really tired of chicken.

With minimal prep work, you can also reinvent the humble chicken.


Mince up 1/2 a white onion and two garlic cloves, and gather those spices!

Beautiful colors. ๐Ÿ™‚

Meanwhile, pat dry your chicken, place it in a glass container, and season with sea salt and pepper.

Pour your marinade over the chicken and rub it all over.

Let the chicken absorb the goodness overnight then roast in the oven at 375 for 25 minutes. You are then rewarded with the tastiest Curry Spiced Chicken Breasts.
