Recipes For a Cookout

It is cookout week and this Lemon Turmeric Grilled Chicken is part of my recipes for a cookout collection! This time to make this a healthy grilled chicken recipe.  I used products from the sponsors: French Farm and Smokin-O’s for this grilled chicken with lemon.

Smokin-O’s is a great wooden disk that you can put on a gas grill so food tastes like it has been wood fired grilled! It is genius.  I really love that these little disks really enhance the flavor of foods.

This Lemon Turmeric Grilled Chicken features turmeric from  French Farm. I admit this lemon and turmeric chicken idea has been in the back of my mind. The turmeric from French Farm. is superb!

Lemon and Turmeric

Lemon and Turmeric go so well together. The combo is perfect for healthy grilled chicken recipes. So in developing recipes for a cookout, I decided to combine two recipes: turmeric grilled chicken and grilled chicken with lemon.
