Turmeric Chicken with Wild Rice is a quick and easy dish that is just as healthy as it is delicious! It’s comfort food without the guilt.
Turmeric Chicken with Wild Rice is the type of dish that is responsible for my blog. Raising my children I often put dishes together based on ingredients that I had at home. Once my children grew and were cooking for themselves, they asked how I made a particular dish.
My daughter would get so mad at me when I just said I threw this and that into a pot. She asked “don’t you ever write anything down? How are we expected to make it?” Thus, Hostess At Heart was born.
My sister gave me some ground chicken that she wasn’t going to use. My first instinct was to make my Turkey Sloppy Joes but I have been wanting to make a dish using turmeric. Turmeric has amazing health benefits and has been used by Chinese and Indian cultures as medicine. It intrigues me how these cultures figure out how to treat illness with ingredients like this! Do you think about that?
