20-Minute Turmeric Chicken Recipe: Turmeric Chicken With Creamy Spinach Coconut Sauce Is Healthy Fast

The tender chicken drenched in this turmeric-heavy coconut sauce is subtle, yet bold. This tasty turmeric chicken recipe is on the table (seriously!) in 20 minutes. I've used both boneless chicken breast and ground chicken in this recipe, and both are delicious. 

The health benefits of turmeric are undeniable – from reducing inflammation and triglyceride levels to reducing your risk of heart disease. It's definitely a winner winner chicken dinner. Serve over white rice, brown rice or quinoa

Cuisine: Indian
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 4


Here's how to make it:

Combine the turmeric, cumin, cinnamon and red pepper flakes. Season the chicken breast chunks with salt and pepper, and then sprinkle with the turmeric mixture to completely cover. Heat the oil in a skillet and cook the chicken until brown on all sides, about 4 minutes.

Add the onion, garlic and ginger. Continue to cook about 2 more minutes.

Pour in the coconut milk. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer about 5 minutes.

Add the spinach and lime juice, and season with salt and pepper. Cook until the spinach wilts. Serve over rice.

It's one of my favorites. Can't decide if I like using ground chicken or chicken breasts best. What did you use? Susan Masterson, PhD

We had chicken breast. Might consider the ground meat sometime too.
