Turmeric and Cumin Rubbed Chicken Breast

Turmeric and Cumin Rubbed Chicken Breast

I love the look and flavor of turmeric.  This spice turns everything a lovely yellow color and ads unbelievable flavor.  Combined with the cumin this spice rub combination takes a simple skinless chicken breast and fills it with fantastic flavor.  As with all poultry, please do not cook it to death, it should be juicy and tender not made into a hockey puck.



1 tsp. turmeric

1 tsp. cumin

1 pinch salt

1 chicken breast, boneless and skinless


Mix the turmeric, cumin, and salt then rub the mixture all over the chicken breast.  Place the breast in a baking dish then in a 375 oven.  Cook for about 40 minutes or until the juices run clear.  Remove from the oven and let rest before slicing.  Serve with oven roasted potatoes.

    Tumeric and cumin are 2 of my favourite spices and the cumin sure does pack a punch. I’ve used them both on chicken before and it’s lovely. Great Recipe. Mr.CBB

    I have been away far too long, so it’s time to get back into the game and work my blog. Not sure how many post per week I can make but I am going to make it work.

    Mmmmm can’t wait to try it. We use it at home in chicken soup too. About half a teaspoon of each in a quart of soup.
