Packed with plenty of flavors, this deliciously simple dish includes coconut milk for a rich finish.

  • 8 to 12 boneless, skinless chicken thighs (depending on size)
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon


  1. Put the chicken in a large freezer bag. Mix together the turmeric, ground coriander, chili powder, black pepper and lemon juice, then pour over the chicken.
