Turmeric Chicken

This chicken happened as an accident because I had totally different plans for these quartered legs. But I. Looked in my spice cabinet and said hmm I wonder how this turmeric will taste on this chicken and well like they say,the rest was delicious history lol.


  • 1lb chicken(I used quartered legs)
  • 1 tablespoon turmeric
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons seasoning salt(Adjust to your preference)
  • 1 teaspoon parsley flakes
  • 1 teaspoon oregano 
  • 1 teaspoon ginger powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • Cooking spray


  1. Wash and remove skin off chicken(I usually soak chicken in water and vinegar then wash it again)
  2. Season chicken with all spices and allow it to marinate(I marinated mine overnight)
  3. Spray baking pan with cooking spray and spread in your chicken 
  4. Set your oven on low broil once the oven warms up, broil the chicken until it's well done. (30-45mins) I broiled mine until it looked like it was fried; that was a personal preference 
  5. Enjoy 

Marinating chicken

I waited till my chicken was this color before I took it out. You can use your own preference for the chicken

Happy New Year Foodies(I know I am super late,LOL)!!! 
Hope you guys have had a good year thus far. It's been a busy one for me if I must say so myself. But I am hanging in there, I miss cooking on a regular but hopefully I will be back to that soon.
Today I want to share one of my recipes that came up as a result of having lots of chicken and no beef.

  • 2lbs of chicken(I used chopped quartered chicken)
  • 1 tablespoon seasoning salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder(optional)
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 2 tablespoons suya spice
  • 1 tablespoon oil


  1. Wash chicken with lemon or lime(for this particular recipe I decided to keep the skin of the chicken on.
  2. Season with all spices and add in the oil.
  3. Allow chicken to marinate for an hour or 2 or even overnight (if you have enough time)
  4. Broil chicken on low for about 30mins- 1hour depending on how hot your oven gets.
  5. In a separate bowl, mix 1 tablespoon of oil and 3 tablespoons of suya spice, brush it on the chicken as its cooking to give you an extra shiny look (LOL, see the finished picture below)

PS: Will add more pictures the next time I make these. I only remembered to take a picture of the finished product. 

Finished product. Mmm..yum!!
