Lemon Turmeric BBQ Chicken

  • Author: Robin Barrie


Yes summer barbecues CAN look like this! (They don’t have to be just the typical burgers and hotdogs!) Just in time for turmeric tuesday, I want to share this amazing chicken recipe with you! Instead of a store-bought marinade, this one is bursting with flavor from all natural spices that are high in antioxidants, and it contains only healthy oil. I sliced mine up and served over sautéed spinach, cauliflower rice, tomatoes, and ginger seasoned with a little extra lemon juice and turmeric, salt and pepper. This is a recipe we make doubles of every week and enjoy leftovers for the next few days. It is a total hit with my family and I know you will love it too! Let me know what you think!


  • 2 lbs boneless skinless organic chicken breast
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 2 tsp kosher salt
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne
  • 4 cloves minced garlic


  1. Slice chicken into 1-2 in strips (or start with pre-cut chicken tenders).
  2. Add remaining marinade ingredients to a glass or Pyrex bowl, and stir well.
  3. Place chicken in the marinade for 1 hour at room temperature or many hours or even over night in the fridge.
  4. Remove from fridge 30 minutes before cooking.
  5. Grill on medium heat up to 7 minutes each side or until cooked through.
  6. OR you can bake in oven at 400 degrees on parchment-lined baking sheet for about 20 minutes (10 on each side, flipping mid-way) or until cooked through.
  7. Slice up, serve over you choice of veggies and/or rice and ENJOY!
