Grilled Turmeric Chicken

Love grilled meat? Then you are going to love this Turmeric Grilled Chicken, a dish with Indonesian origin so juicy and succulent that it will keep you coming back for more. This recipe involves, quite simply, bathing the meat with a simple marinate of turmeric, coriander, garlic and oil, grilling and mixing together the dipping sauce! We recommend a minimum of 30 minutes of marinating but if you do it all night, it will be juicier and tastier!
