This easy 30-minute turmeric chicken formula will be one that you keep on your feast list of options rotation weekly. Obsessed is one way to describe this recipe but most importantly, easy.
- Take a skillet and heat it on a medium-low flame. Add oil, vegetable or olive whichever is available. Once the oil is heated, add the chopped garlic and onion, let them cook until raw smell goes away.
- Let the onions soften, then add the mushrooms and let it cook. Make sure, they don’t burn so keep stirring them.
- Add the chicken portions and some salt and pepper according to your taste preference. Cook and stir until the chicken is cooked, for about 15 minutes.
- Add some paprika and the turmeric into the skillet. Stir till it’s evenly coated. Add the lemon juice in the mixture and stir.
- Add some parsley. Add rice and let it mix till 5 to 7 minutes, stir thoroughly.
It takes no time to make it and it is one of our favorite dishes to make now. I make it at least once a week because of how quickly it comes together (yes, really, 30 minutes!) which is super helpful for me during weeknights after work.
- In case you’re using frozen mushroom, make sure you thaw the mushroom perfectly and drain the extra water.
- To check if the chicken is cooked, check if any portion is pink. Pink in the chicken denotes rawness.
- Parsley is a substitute to Italian seasoning.
Make sure no consumer is allergic to ingredients like broccoli or corn-starch.
