The flavors are unique and I love them!

In today’s recipe I decided to add chicken thighs, that I seasoned with some cumin and turmeric and grilled on the stove top. They pair very well with the turmeric rice.

I also added some grilled zucchini and chopped tomatoes to make this Turmeric Chicken And Rice dish look more like a fancy grain bowl. This way you have your flavorful grains (from the Village Harvest Origins Collection Turmeric Rice), juicy protein (boneless, skinless chicken thighs), and veggies.

I can definitely eat meals like this every day!

This Turmeric Chicken And Rice is the perfect meal for busy families (picturing mine), college students or an addition to your lunch box. It cooks fast and tastes delicious. Definitely a restaurant quality healthier meal.
