Here is the one I set aside for Slow Cooking Thursday

SPICY TURMERIC CHICKEN

1 chicken, 4 to 4 ½ lbs., cut into eight serving pieces
Nonstick cooking spray
1 can (16 oz.) coconut milk
4 cups hot cooked white rice

Turmeric marinade:

1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon paprika
1 tablespoon ground turmeric
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 ½ teaspoons salt
Freshly cracked black pepper to taste
Juice of 1 lemon
1 can (16 oz.) coconut milk

Combine marinade ingredients in a small glass or stainless steel bowl. (Turmeric can stain other dishes yellow.)

Wash and dry chicken, reserving giblets for other use. Remove any lumps of fat.

Rub marinade all over chicken. Coat inside of slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray and add chicken. Pour coconut milk over chicken pieces.

Cover and cook on high for 4 to 5 hours, or on low for 7 to 9 hours, or until chicken is done.

Serve the chicken with rice topped by sauce from the slow cooker.

Here is some info on Turmeric: Turmeric has a peppery, warm and bitter flavor and a mild fragrance slightly reminiscent of orange and ginger, and while it is best known as one of the ingredients used to make curry, it also gives ballpark mustard its bright yellow color.
Turmeric comes from the root of the Curcuma longa plant and has a tough brown skin and a deep orange flesh. Turmeric has long been used as a powerful anti-inflammatory in both the Chinese and Indian systems of medicine. Turmeric was traditionally called ¡°Indian saffron¡± because of its deep yellow-orange color and has been used throughout history as a condiment, healing remedy and textile dye.

    I’ve always like the recipes you share! I’m not sure what turmeric is? Is it just like a powdered spice? Do you get it at the grocery store? Does it have a Thai flavor? Just curious.

  5. Happy Thursday!
