Recipe: Turmeric Grilled Chicken

recipe: Poultry and Pork

I love grilled chicken. It is low fat and full of protein, but sometimes, grilled chicken can get a little boring. Whether you love Thai spices and flavors or are just looking for a new twist to traditional grilled chicken, this recipe is for you. It is full of flavor, quick and easy to make, and takes plain old grilled chicken to a whole new level. Plus, when the super healthy spice, turmeric, is involved, you know it’s a great thing!



  • 5 pounds chicken legs, skinless, bone-in (approximately 20)
  • ½ cup cilantro/coriander leaves and roots, washed
  • 1 tablespoon turmeric
  • 1 cup garlic cloves
  • 2 teaspoons whole black peppercorns
  • 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon Asian Fish Sauce
  • 2 tablespoons coconut aminos or gluten-free soy sauce (or Tamari)
  • 2 tablespoons coconut palm sugar
