  • CookOut Week 2017

It is cookout week and this Lemon Turmeric Grilled Chicken is my second recipe in this year’s collaboration. This time to make this yummy, if I do say so myself, chicken I used products from the sponsors: French Farm and Smokin-O’s. Smokin-O’s may sound a little familiar to you because I also used them when I created the:

Smokehouse Grilled Meatloaf is a wonderful lighter version of meatloaf only it is made on the grill! What gives it that smokehouse flavor is using Smokin O's on the grill for that wood fired taste! A great recipe for #RecipeMakeover

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 is my second recipe that I used a product from the French Farm. When I was told I was one the bloggers to create a recipe with their products and I could choose the product, I immediately went for the Persian Saffron. I admit this lemon saffron chicken idea has been in the back of my mind.

I was sent the turmeric, which will still work for this idea I have. Saffron is very expensive and turmeric is a good substitute for the spice. I am glad I got it. The turmeric from French Farm. is superb!

I admit why I was so I had to make a chicken for Cookout Week is because I don’t have a lot of chicken recipes on here. Sure I have plenty of beef and even seafood, but very little chicken. If memory serves, I did the same thing last year for cookout week. I made Jerk Chicken Burgers with Tropical Fruit Slaw I did that so can make more chicken as well. I guess I need blogger events to create chicken recipes!

Anyway, I am a fan of lemon chicken personally. I really love lemon as I said on Baked Lemon Potato Wedges. So creating a chicken recipe.I, of course, wanted to incorporate lemon into it.

Add in some garlic and of course the turmeric, I created a flavorful Lemon Turmeric Grilled Chicken. It was perfect! Then when was grilled with the Mesquite Smokin-O’s it was beyond irresistibly good.
