You’re going to love this Turmeric Chicken recipe! It’s an excellent source of lean meat for the week. The lightness of white meat turkey mixed with a combination of ground chicken and turmeric creates a tasty and healthy meat dish.

Turmeric’s warm flavor, along with its numerous benefits — it’s an anti-inflammatory and can boost norepinephrine, dopamine, and serotonin in your body. — makes this dish all the more nutritious and comforting. Plus, the addition of bone broth will add a boost of collagen and help boost your immune system.
